The climax of COP27 is everywhere in the foreign press this morning
Dominating the foreign press this morning: The COP27 celebration / post-mortem (depending on who you’re talking to and which part of the world they’re from). The Western press is being fairly even-handed with its post-summit analysis, giving equal coverage to the breakthrough agreement on loss and damage and the lack of progress on reducing emissions.

Egypt isn’t escaping criticism as the foreign journos leave Sharm: AFP is out with a piece suggesting that Egypt failed to be a neutral broker in the talks, quoting France’s top climate negotiator who alleges that the COP27 Presidency’s text was influenced by the fossil fuel industry. Meanwhile, an opinion piece in the Guardian concludes that the constant focus on human rights means that the summit did little to improve Egypt’s international reputation.
