NMG sends star-studded team to Cop27
The world will converge between November 6 and 18 for the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference 2022, COP27, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
Several people including media personnel will attend the 27th conference which is expected to bring together experts with a clearer understanding of the climate crisis.
Nation Media Group has sent a star-studded team to the conference. Here is the list and what they hope to see achieved this year:
Hellen Shikanda- Health and Science Reporter
I am interested in Climate justice with a key focus on championing for adaptation and mitigation measures. I hope to see the climate finance pledge by wealthy nations live up to this year.
James Kahongeh – Science Reporter
This edition of Cop is happening in our backyard. My expectation is to see Kenya and Africa push their climate agenda more resolutely than before.
Zeynab Wandati – Science Editor, NTV
I’ve covered a couple of COPs over the last few years, but never one in Africa, so I’m quite looking forward to it.
Leon Lidigu – Health and Science Reporter
I will be focusing on oil, coal and gas, plastics, blue economy as well as the impacts air pollution and climate change are having on food systems and human health.
Pauline Ongaji – Science Reporter
I expect to see leaders from poor countries show commitment to creating structures that will ensure the proper use of funds that will be used to address the causes and consequences of climate change.
Francis Mureithi – Science and Environment Reporter
I would like to see implementable pledges at COP27 and not more empty pledges as well as inclusive action on climate. finance that is deliverable, with countries displaying political will.
Sylia Muia – Lifestyle and Environment Reporter
I hope to see promises become actions. Developing countries such as Kenya that contribute less than one percent to global greenhouse gas emissions should finally receive the reparations that they deserve.
Robert Gichira – Head of Camera and producer, NTV
After years of covering Climate change, it will be interesting to see what the powers will have to say about what they are doing to stop these changes.
