CS Soipan Tuya To Lead Kenyan Delegation To COP 27

Reading Time: 1 minute

Kenya's Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Soipan Tuya will lead the Kenyan delegation to Sharm El-sheikh, Egypt, this week for the Conference of Parties (Cop) 27.

The COPs are the biggest and most important annual climate-related conferences on the planet.

The global climate change meeting is hosted by Egypt this year and will dwell on the practical 'how' to fulfill net zero pledges, investigating how cities can implement better, faster, and more effective climate initiatives.

Cop 27 will mainly focus on strengthening Climate Adaptation and resilience, facilitating a transition, Mitigating emissions, increasing funding, and joining hands for essential Climate solutions.

In 1992, the UN organized the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in which the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted, and its coordinating agency - what we know now as the UN Climate Change secretariat - was put into place.

In this treaty, nations agreed to "stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere to prevent dangerous interference from human activity on the climate system". So far, 197 different parties have signed it.

The CS will also be accompanied by the Principal Secretary, Chris Kiptoo, and other Government dignitaries to the conference.

President William Ruto is expected to attend the official opening of the Global event.
