CPMR: COP 27: CPMR advocates more action on climate and involving regions to shape and implement it

The 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 27) met in Egypt on 6/18 November, to agree on global policy solutions to tackle climate change. The CPMR acknowledges the Sharm el-Sheikh implementation plan and stresses the need to intensify mitigation and adaptation actions as part of the global socioeconomic recovery efforts and considering the current geopolitical situation with its impact on energy, food security and the economy.

Cees Loggen, President of the CPMR and Regional Minister of the Province of Noord Holland stated: “Maritime Regions are seriously concerned about the frequency, intensity and impact of extreme weather conditions and increasing levels of loss and damage. The international community and EU institutions should face up to the reality that millions of people around the world – including in Europe – are at risk of being displaced due to the effects of climate change. This is a global challenge that requires more attention and solutions at all levels, in particular by entrusting the role and experience of local and regional authorities as a positive enabler”.

George Alexakis, CPMR Vice-President in charge of Energy and Climate and Regional Councillor of Crete to Vice-Governor of Crete said “The CPMR takes note of the COP 27 decision to establish a Transitional Committee on the operationalization of the new funding arrangements and on the new fund for responding to loss and damage. Such recognition at global level should push EU co-legislators to start a parallel debate on the EU Solidarity Fund and its possible future perspectives, especially when it comes to regional disasters”.

Eleni Marianou, Secretary General of the CPMR said: “The global energy crisis we are facing underlines how crucial it is to rapidly transform the EU’s energy systems to make them more secure and resilient. CPMR member regions are contributing daily to mitigation solutions through their regional policies and strive to accelerate a clean and just transition to renewable energy. REPOWER-EU should be given the means to address the increasing energy poverty in Europe’s regions”.
