MIGA at COP27
The 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP27) is taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from Nov. 6-18, 2022. Egypt’s vision as COP27 President is to move from negotiations and planning toward “full, timely, inclusive, and at-scale action on the ground.
Private sector involvement in climate action is key to closing the climate finance gap, which by some estimates ranges in trillions of dollars. MIGA's ability to mobilize private capital is essential for unlocking private sector potential for addressing climate finance needs in developing countries.
MIGA has made climate change a priority area of its strategy, along with low-income countries and fragile and conflict-affected situations, and has sought to implement the commitments made in the World Bank Group Climate Change Action Plan.
