CSG Scotland mentioned that she talked about the Commonwealth’s assistance in unlocking climate finance, harnessing data, and building capacity to tackle climate change impacts in Saint Lucia via Commonwealth CFAH.

Patricia Scotland stated, “Climate change is an existential danger to the Commonwealth’s small and most vulnerable nations. I restated The Commonwealth’s continuous support towards building climate resilience in and the whole Caribbean region.”

The Secretary-General also shared glimpses of her meetings on her official Facebook handle.

COP27 is the 27th edition of the United Nations Climate Change Conference and is being conducted from November 6 until November 18 2022, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

At COP17, she also launched the Commonwealth’s ‘The State of Digital Agriculture in the Commonwealth’ Report.

The report came at a critical time as food insecurity is rising. This Connectivity Agenda report uses data to inform members of the state of digital agriculture.

This is a groundbreaking report, as hundreds of successful cases of digital innovations are operating across the Commonwealth. Still, up to now, it has been challenging to document, partly because no baseline exists. The Commonwealth Connectivity Agenda has created one.
