: Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt

'Addressing the climate crisis requires bold and rapid collective action. Science has established beyond doubt that the window for action is closing rapidly.

In November 2022, Egypt will host the 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) in Sharm El-Sheikh, with a view to building on previous successes and paving the way for future ambition.

A golden opportunity for all stakeholders to rise to the occasion and tackle effectively the global challenge of climate change facilitated by Egypt on the African continent.'

Scientists from Plymouth Marine Laboratory will take part in COP27, as they have done for over a decade, continuing to highlight the enormous role the ocean plays in sustaining life on Earth, regulating climate and the consequences of a high CO2 world for the ocean and society.
