The Coalition had a huge representation at the 27th edition of the Conference of the party in Sharm El-sheikh. With a key focus on Loss and Damage Finance, the coalition was in the negotiation, coordinated youth-led actions, hosted side events, supported other side events, and had members who met with their heads of state.
