Key takeaways on the outcomes of COP27 from the Accelerate for Impact Platform: A spotlight on multi-stakeholder partnerships, youth-led innovation, and more.


This year’s Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) in Egypt counted more than 45,000 participants from governments, research and academia, civil society, Indigenous Peoples, private sector, and finance who came together from around the world to raise the ambition to accelerate climate action for a zero-carbon future for all.

The CGIAR delegation held strong, pushing forward its mandate to find solutions for the world’s most vulnerable groups who are disproportionately affected by the climate crisis. Among the highlights of COP27, Parties made the ground-breaking decision to establish new funding arrangements as well as a dedicated ‘Loss and Damage Fund’ to financially support vulnerable countries hit hard by climate disasters.

As part of the CGIAR delegation, the Accelerate for Impact Platform (A4IP) joined the debate championing the importance of scaling scientific innovation to address complex, interconnected, and urgent challenges related to agriculture.
