The Egyptian Human Rights Coalition on COP27
It is an alliance led by the Committee for Justice, in collaboration with a number of Egyptian civil society organizations, who believe that climate sustainability is not possible without the presence of free spaces for civil society work and the enforcement of human rights.
This alliance emerged within the framework of the 27th United Nations Climate Change conference held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, in 2022 (COP27). Its objective was to shed light on the violations against civil and human rights work in Egypt, which are among the major obstacles to climate sustainability.
The alliance aims to continue raising awareness about the human rights situation in Egypt and its impact on climate justice in future conferences.
During COP27, the alliance was keen on documenting the violations against human rights defenders through a dedicated website for the conference (here).”
