CAIRO – 2 April 2022: Egyptian Minister of Environment Yasmine Fouad has tackled Egypt’s roadmap towards the COP27 climate conference due to convene in Sham El Sheikh in November 2022.
The minister discussed Egypt’s plan during her presidency of the closing session of a workshop for the United Nations Secretariat mission, the Joint Operational Team of the COP27 Climate Conference in Egypt.
“We are continuing joint consultations to reach the best results in implementing the conference,” said Fouad. She also listened to certain points and possible challenges that could face the participants.
On March 27, 2022, Fouad launched the first national dialogue on climate change from Sharm El Sheikh (the city of peace) where the conference would convene in November.
