20 green projects for COP27

The government is preparing to launch more than 20 green projects during COP27, Youm7 writes, quoting Gamil Helmy, assistant planning minister for sustainability. The projects will cost a combined USD 120 bn and will span the electricity, renewable energy, transportation, agriculture, water and gas sectors.

Speaking of COP27, the government will host a pre-COP27 youth conference for young people to share their thoughts and suggestions for addressing the climate crisis, Mahmoud Mohieldin, UN Climate Change High Level Champion for Egypt, said (pdf) at a meeting with chief sustainability officers at AUC.
