The COP summit is considered the largest and most important international event that the world witnesses every year.  The delegations of member states to the convention, the Kyoto Protocol, and the Paris Climate Agreement meet to discuss, consult and negotiate contentious issues within the framework of the implementation of international agreements related to climate change.

I have been asked by a LinkedIn member why Sharm El_shiekh?

I assumed the question was why Egypt for COP27?

Now, has anyone got ideas about: Why Egypt? and Why Sharm?

I am waiting for your response.

I think it's important to represent a diversity of geographies and people. COP24 through COP26 were all in Europe, so it makes sense to go somewhere like Egypt. And in terms of experiencing climate impacts, I'm sure warming temperatures are an immense concern across the African continent, as are issues with energy equity. So it seems as great of a place as any.

And for what it's worth, it looks like COP28 in 2023 will be at a not-yet-named location in Asia.

Hi Matt

Thanks for your response which sounds like logical reasoning. Let us hope for the success of COP26 this year and COP27 next year.
