Journey to COP27 (J2C)

We are already on the road to COP27 and we are working hard to deliver on the important commitments we made during COP26.

J2C aims to rally stakeholders to a green economy.

Glasgow Climate Pact, a key outcome of COP 26, kept alive the prospects of achieving what Paris promised – limiting global warming to well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. 140 countries pledged to reach net-zero emissions which include 90% of current Global Green Gas Emissions. Other key outcomes included – around 100 countries pledging to halt and reverse deforestation, around 40 countries pledging to move away from coal, and countries promising to draw half of their energy requirements from renewable sources by 2030.

As countries strive to achieve their NDCs, Kenya revised its own to a more ambitious target of reducing emissions to 32% by 2030. This is only going to be possible if organizations come together and develop strategic interventions. It is on this basis that the Standard Media Group and Kenya Climate Innovation Centre signed a partnership agreement to sensitize and engage stakeholders through joint advocacy initiatives leading to respective COPs starting with COP27 through a program dubbed Journey to COP27 (J2C). In order to onboard stakeholders into these initiatives, a multi-sectoral breakfast sensitization forum has been jointly organized.
