For the first time in COP’s history, the 27th edition hosts a Mediterranean Pavilion. The initiative is conceived to highlight both the urgent challenges the region is currently facing, and the innovative adaptation and mitigation solutions already being developed throughout the Mediterranean, raising awareness on a region overlooked in the climate negotiations.
Ahead of the inaugural event, environmental journalists from across the Mediterranean region are invited to attend a press briefing to understand the purpose of the Mediterranean Pavilion and the planned activities during COP27. The briefing will also provide the latest information on the impact of climate and environmental change in the Euro-Mediterranean region. Grammenos Mastrojeni, Senior Deputy Secretary General of the Union of the Mediterranean, will be conducting the press briefing.
When: November 9th, 2022 – 10:00AM (Egypt local time, CET+1)
Where: Press Conference Room 1, Theatre 240, Area E (see it on the COP 27 venue map), the briefing can also be followed online here.
