In November 2022, Egypt will host the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 27), the UN’s annual conference on climate change. The country finds itself in an important position. Egypt as the host country will be looked upon to be a strong voice for the Global South and help further just energy transitions in growing economies. Moreover, Egyptian perspectives on climate adaptation can also help shed light on the priorities of many other developing countries and emerging markets. 

The Center on Global Energy Policy will host a panel of Egyptian experts drawn from academia, international organization, and civil society to share their views on the inter-linked challenges of energy governance, water management, and public services delivery in Africa's most urbanized state against a background of sea-level rises, erratic climate financing, and growing water scarcity.

Moderator:

  • Dr. Harry Verhoeven, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA

Panelists:

  • Dr. Lama El Hatow, Johns Hopkins University
  • Dr. Mohamed Nada, World Bank Group
  • Eng Mohamed Kamal, Greenish Foundation
