The road to COP27: an AOSIS view

We spoke with Ambassador Webson, Chair of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) to get his thoughts on the new IPCC reports on adaptation and mitigation, his priorities this year, and what a good COP27 in November 2022 looks like for the Small Island Developing States.

In this conversation we explored the clear need for a dramatic shift in how we tackle the climate crisis, the vital role climate finance has to play and the growing costs of climate change impacts.  

Covid-19 combined to create a debt crisis for small islands, and developing states are suffering and why for the leaders of the most climate vulnerable countries, success at COP27 isn’t a nice to have, it’s an existential imperative.
