The 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP27) takes place from 6-18 November 2022, hosted by the Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt. The FACT Dialogue will highlight its important role in addressing climate change and the transformations of the global food system to support sustainability and protect forests, ecosystems and people.

The schedule

  • Forests and Climate Leaders Summit

    The Forest and Climate Leaders’ Summit is the first event of the Forest and Climate Leaders’ Partnership. It will focus on delivery and accountability of forest and land use commitments made at COP26 and other relevant fora. The event will focus on how essential forests are for people, in terms of food resilience, adaptation and for livelihoods and for climate, notably the vital
    sequestration role they play in meeting the Paris agreement. Each session should outline (i) how forests can be a positive development choice for countries contributing to sustainable economic development; (2) the essential role of Africa; and (3) the importance of all types of finance being directed to meet the challenge – i.e. Grants, Concessional Finance, Equity, Philanthropy, Private Investment.

    12:00 - 14:00 (EST)
  • The Forest and Climate Leaders’ Partnership: Unpacking the FACT Dialogue, Traders Roadmap and Forest Tenure Pledge to build more sustainable supply chains and support Indigenous Peoples and local communities

    This event brings together producer and consumer countries, some of the largest global traders and brands, civil society, and indigenous communities, to reflect on progress to date and explore the challenges and opportunities for turning ambition into collective action. We will assess progress on the FACT Dialogue’s Roadmap for Action, the Agricultural Commodity Companies
    Roadmap for increased supply chain action, and the Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPs and LC) Forest Tenure Donor Pledge.

    The forestry, land use and agriculture sector contribute 23% of global emissions. There is no net zero without removing deforestation from agricultural commodity supply chains, and there is no solution to deforestation and protecting forests without IPs and LC in the lead. The launch of the Forest and Climate Leaders' Partnership at COP27 unites
    action by governments, business, and community leaders to halt and reverse forest loss and land degradation by 2030, while delivering sustainable development and promoting an inclusive rural transformation.

    04:30 - 06:30 (EST)

  • Hope in a time of crisis

    The world is going through multiple interconnected crises, from climate change to conflict, rising inequality, hunger, and habitat loss – most of them caused by human activity. The science – time is running out. Yet, a wave of collective action, behavioral changes, nature and land-based solutions, political will and incentives offer hope for a just transition that can put
    people and nature on a path to recovery. In this plenary, leading policymakers, environmental lawyers, scientists, and journalists will share their journeys in navigating the climate crisis.
