We regret to inform you that this event has been postponed. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your interest in Atlantic Council’s events.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center on October 31 from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. ET for a virtual panel discussion on setting the agenda for COP27.

This year’s Conference of Parties (COP) been branded as an implementation COP which will center the interests and aspirations of developing nations in achieving universal energy access and meeting climate goals in tandem. More broadly, these themes also offer an opportunity to expand the energy transition debate to be inclusive of stakeholders from countries in all stages of development, industry, and the financial community to ensure that climate goals are met equitably and that the transition to a net-zero world occurs alongside continued growth. This discussion will feature a diverse group of stakeholders, each weighing in on the opportunities for progress and their vision for the outcomes for this year’s meetings.

Weighing in on their respective priorities for COP27, Landon Derentz, Senior Director of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate a discussion with speakers to be announced. The speakers will seek to address key questions, such as: how do we ensure that energy security and climate action are non-adversarial goals? How can the developing world assert its own agency in shaping their energy transition on the road to net-zero? How do we close the financing gap? What action is needed to ensure that the world is on track to meet 2030 climate goals?

This discussion will take place over Zoom, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. To receive the event information, please register via the web application Zoom.
