Do the technical and policy outcomes of COP-27 have promise for reaching net zero as quickly as needed?

EESN and the MIT Club of Washington, DC. are cosponsoring this December webinar on the 2022 COP-27, with alumni/ae speakers talking about what they learned there. Sometimes called the African COP or the Implementation COP, the official negotiating parties worked hard to resolve barriers to successful implementation of commitments. It is hard to say how effective they were in setting up the financial and technical assistance developing nations need.

The MIT delegation included webinar speaker Jeremy Gregory, SM ‘00 PhD ‘06. He and speaker Emily Moberg ‘11, PhD ‘16, World Wildlife Federation, also participated in many of the events in the Blue Zone

COP-27 Days

As Executive Director of the MIT Climate & Sustainability Consortium (MCSC), Jeremy went to the COP with a wide perspective of academic and member company interests. Speaker Emily Moberg ‘11, PhD ‘16, and MIT people from the Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab (J-WAFS) and Energy Club covered other topics.
