2022 Forum

The road to COP27: making Africa’s case in the climate debate


The Ibrahim Forum is a unique African conversation on the key issues facing the continent.

Informed by research from the Foundation and focussed on practical solutions, the Forum comprised three interactive panel discussions that were broadcast live to the world via mif.live/igw.

The 2022 Ibrahim Forum aimed to help inform and articulate Africa’s position in the global debate around climate change, six months ahead of the COP27 summit hosted by Egypt.
