The UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) will host one of five regional forums being organized by the Egyptian Presidency of the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 27), UNFCCC High-level Champions, and the five UN Regional Commissions.
The event will bring together high-level policy and decision makers from the ministries of economy, finance, trade, industry, energy, and environment in the UNECE region. Mining and metals industry leaders, the financial sector, and civil society representatives will be invited to participate, along with key stakeholders in sustainable consumption and production and circular economy.
The Forum’s goal is to create momentum and advance a set of partnerships that will help an agreement on enhanced regional collaboration to develop a robust, sustainability-focused information framework and investment roadmap and business case for the assurance of critical raw materials, and help crowd in climate finance and other sources of finance to the field of sustainably managing critical raw materials.
