2023 | COP27 DEBRIEF (9 FEBRUARY 2023)

Faith-based engagement and climate advocacy: reflections on COP27 and anticipating COP28

COP27 Debrief event

Dominicans for Justice and Peace co-organised with the Geneva Interfaith Forum on Climate Change, Environment, and Human Rights an in-person and online event on 9 February entitled “Ethical Perspectives on COP27 & Looking Forward Towards COP28.

The event served as a platform for faith-based groups to evaluate their involvement in the COP27 process and prepare for COP28 in Dubai. The focus was on how to infuse a perspective of faith and compassion into climate negotiations to influence decision-makers to consider human rights and the environment. During COP27, numerous faith-based organisations actively participated in both negotiations and raising awareness about ambitious climate action. Speakers discussed the evolution of the multilateral climate regime, questioning whether climate action is about decolonisation or maintaining power dynamics. They encouraged faith-based organisations to reshape narratives around climate negotiations. Indigenous perspectives were highlighted, emphasising the need for greater implementation of pledges and inclusion of local voices in climate solutions.
