Science agrees that humans have changed climate as it remains key point to effective solutions.

“Today, the scientific community has never been more certain and clearer about man-made climate change,” said Hoesung Lee, Chair of IPCC

Data and evidence for delivering implementation in building capacity for climate action. In addition, scientific research critical to accelerating delivery for mitigation and adaptation.

COP27’s second thematic day focused on the importance of scientific developments and research to solve the catastrophic long-term problems that the world is facing as a result of climate change.

Science is front and center at COP27 thematic day kick started with “IPCC 6th Assessment Report session under “How to Accelerate Global Climate Action,” during which the panel reiterated the message that humans have changed climate.

The panel joined by Egyptian Minister of Environment Dr Yasmine Fouad, Egyptian Minister of Higher Education, HE Mohamed Ayman Ashour, and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Chair, Hoesung Lee, the speakers referenced the warnings from the global scientific and academic community and the need for science-based information to support implementation.

While speaking Hoesung Lee, Chair of IPCC said that the first seeds of our scientific work today were planted here thousands of years ago. This rich heritage of ancient Egypt profoundly contributed to our understanding and command of mathematics, written language, science, and technology.

“Today, the scientific community has never been more certain and clearer about man-made climate change,” he added.

Science Day saw panel discussions and events to bring forward the outcomes of the reports and their recommendations, and further enhance engagement of the climate community, practitioners and different stakeholders to discuss and engage on the linkages and findings related to climate change.

In his allocution, COP27 President H.E. Sameh Shoukry said, “Science plays a key role in informing the climate process, providing critical evidence and numbers to build the case for action and the urgency of implementation.”

“We hope that all the participants in our thematic day on science leave with a stronger desire for finding science-based solutions and plan for implementation that leaves no one behind,” he added.

COP President Shoukry also added: “While we cannot turn back time on melting glaciers and reverse global emissions, we can stop backsliding on our commitments and slow down, even stop some of the impact of climate change by drawing upon science to find solutions.”

As of 2022, the global scientific community, including IPCC and UNEP, have released landmark reports that require us to pay urgent attention and act quickly and increase our ambition and action.

Science Day comprised panel discussions and events to bring forward the outcomes of the reports and their recommendations, and further enhance engagement of the climate community, practitioners, and different stakeholders to discuss and engage on the linkages and findings related to climate change.

The various sessions concluded that scientists need to do more to make their data available and understandable to help policy makers fight climate change
