The 13th Petersberg Climate Dialogue, held between 17 and 19 July immediately after the G7 summit and interim negotiations in Bonn, brought together senior representatives from some 40 countries to pave the way towards COP27. As part of the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, an ICN volunteer also participated in the informal exchange with German government representatives and other young civil society delegates.
A three-day series of meetings and workshops on Africa's ecological transition and energy in the run-up to COP27 concluded in Addis Ababa on Thursday, August 4, 2022, at the headquarters of the African Union. The meeting was also attended by an important part of the African Negotiating Group (ANG), the official grouping of African delegates to the COPs. Among the goals of the Addis Ababa meeting was to strengthen a common position just ahead of the Egyptian summit in November, but things did not go as many expected.
