World climate leaders meet in Copenhagen for May Ministerial
The COP26 and COP27 Presidencies will be convening a Ministerial on 12-13 May in Copenhagen. Hosted by Denmark, the May Ministerial meeting will provide the opportunity for ministers worldwide to discuss action in response to commitments from the UNFCCC, the Paris Agreement, previous Conferences of the Parties (COP) and most recently the Glasgow Climate Pact.
For the first time since COP26 in Glasgow, climate leaders from across the world convene at the May Ministerial in Copenhagen to discuss the commitments of the Glasgow Climate Pact. The meeting will provide the opportunity for ministers to discuss the practical action needed to drive progress on implementation going forward.
The gathering will be co-chaired by British COP26 President Alok Sharma and Minister Sameh Shoukry from the incoming Egyptian COP27 Presidency. Executive Secretary of UN Climate Change, UNFCCC, Patricia Espinosa, will be in attendance. Denmark’s Climate Minister Dan Jørgensen is hosting the Ministerial while prominent climate leaders and key decision makers from all over the world will participate in the event.
Main themes will revolve around implementing the visions from Glasgow, with particular focus on climate adaptation, green financing and keeping 1.5 alive.
