No more false climate solutions: Press conference at COP27 Nov. 10

10 November 2022, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt—The Global Forest Coalition is hosting a press conference today at the UN climate conference (COP27) at 13:30 local time in Press Conference Room 2 Luxor about the false solutions to climate change linked to the negotiations, featuring panelists from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This is an important opportunity to hear from frontline communities and their views on real solutions to the climate crisis that are rights-based and gender-transformative.

The press conference is called The End of False Solutions: COP27, Moving Towards Rights-Based and Gender Transformative Solutions to Climate Change. It will highlight a new issue of Forest Cover with the same title:

Speakers at this press conference are: 

  • Camila Romero of Colectivo VientoSur in Chile
  • Maureen Santos of FASE Brazil
  • Kwami Kpondzo of the Global Forest Coalition in Togo 
  • Souparna Lahiri of the Global Forest Coalition in India
  • Rachel Rose of Corporate Accountability

They will offer insights on false solutions like Koronivia and climate-smart agriculture, Article 6 and carbon markets, and bioenergy. They will also discuss the extent of the corporate capture of these crucial global negotiations and efforts to bring frontline perspectives to the fore through campaigns like Kick Big Polluters Out.
