After a whirlwind two weeks, the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) is drawing to a close in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt with climate experts and activists eagerly awaiting the end of negotiations to see what progress has been made.

What initiatives have been introduced to increase climate action and the escalating costs from climate impacts? What new pledges have been made by world leaders? Since Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s announcement at the 2021 UN General Assembly that China would no longer fund new overseas coal plants, what progress has China made in supporting renewable energy in developing countries?
