From November 6 to 18, the world will be gathering in Charm el-Cheikh, Egypt for COP27. Two of our policy analysts, Andréanne Brazeau and Émile Boisseau-Bouvier, will be doing their part to ensure that member countries jointly adopt ambitious, effective, just and equitable measures to keep planetary warming below 1.5°C.
Équiterre is part of the Canadian delegation to COP27, and is among the Canadian environmental organizations with access to the negotiations. We will be carrying out various on-site activities, from organizing a panel and participating in others, to getting involved in the negotiations.

What is COP?
COP is short for “Conference of the Parties” to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), a framework for action to combat climate warming that nearly all the world’s countries have joined. This year’s conference will be the 27th edition.
COP also brings together numerous non-state actors, including regional and local authorities, civil society organizations, Indigenous groups, scientists, labour unions, businesses and youth, who gather to have their voices heard.
What we’re keeping an eye on
In preparation for Équiterre’s participation in COP27, we’ve drawn up our climate expectations and priorities for the Quebec and Canadian governments. We have many demands that we feel are essential and deserving of our leaders’ attention. The end goal? Nothing short of a more ambitious climate strategy to combat the crisis.
Never ones to stand still, Équiterre has already made our demands known to our governments. Have a look to see what we’re proposing.
COP27 is right around the corner. Let us be your eyes and ears!
