As the curtains fall on COP27 in Egypt, questions are asked as to whether the summit covered all the necessary ground to result in real change.

On one hand a historic deal establishing a loss and damage fund was reached to support those most at risk to the effects of climate change. On the other hand, some expressed concern with COP27's final statements on emissions mitigation, which did not go further than last years’ statements on limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees.

We have been tracking the negotiations to date, and we look ahead to the implications for COP28 in Dubai.
