We are only a few days away from COP27 - the United Nations Climate Conference which will be held this year in Sharm el-Sheikh. And since last year's COP in Glasgow, the circumstances have changed significantly. We are witnessing a war, we are witnessing an energy crisis, and ultimately the rising cost of life and cost of doing business.
Throughout 2022, the EU has been dealing with its Fit For 55 package which defines Union's climate goals and aims to put them into practice. Cutting carbon emissions, establishing social climate fund, raising the target for renewables... These are just some of the elements covered by the Fit For 55 package, but what is happening in the other regions of the world? Clearly, the EU cannot act on climate change alone, and that's why this COP will be so important.
To discuss what we can expect from this year's Conference, in our new podcast episode Anna Gumbau had a talk with MEP Lidia Pereira, a member of the European Parliament's delegation to this year's COP.
