    Scientific Seminars and Presentations, and Qualitative Initiatives at ICESCO Pavilion in COP 27

    8 November 2022

    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) is participating in the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 27) with a special pavilion in the Green Zone. The conference is hosted by the Arab Republic of Egypt in Sharm El Sheikh, from 6 to 18 November 2022, in the presence of kings, heads of state and government, ministers and delegations from 190 countries, in addition to international organizations, regional bodies, civil society institutions and environmental protection activists.

    ICESCO’s participation in this major global event comes as part of the Organization’s vision and strategic orientation to support international efforts in the field of environmental preservation and to contribute to addressing the negative effects of climate change in its Member States.

    ICESCO’s pavilion at COP 27 in Sharm El Sheikh will organize several activities, commencing on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, as it will feature the Organization’s key publications in the areas of heritage protection, environmental preservation and governance of environmental natural resources. Several ICESCO Sector Heads and Experts will also present scientific presentations on the risks of climate change and ICESCO’s key initiatives, programmes and projects to support its Member States.

    The ICESCO pavilion will also witness the organization of a photographic exhibition, documenting the repercussions of climate change on the historical sites inscribed on ICESCO’s Islamic world Heritage Lists. Visitors to the pavilion will also be able to view a set of videos produced by the Organization in the field of environmental protection, and its initiatives, programmes and training sessions to raise awareness among young people about the importance of climate preservation and the repercussions of climate change on heritage sites.

    ICESCO’s participation in COP27 also includes organizing several parallel events. On Friday, November 11, 2022, the Blue Zone will witness the signing of a memorandum of understanding between ICESCO, the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, UNESCO, the United Nations Development Program, the Industrial Modernization Center in the Arab Republic of Egypt to support the green transformation project and the use of solar energy in heritage sites and museums. On the same day, ICESCO, in partnership with the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, will launch an initiative to establish a fund to protect heritage sites and museums in Egypt and the Islamic world from the damage of climate change.
