Dr Mahmoud Mohieldin, UN Climate Change High Level Champion for Egypt and UN Special Envoy on Financing 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, praised the goals set by youth for climate action, stressing that "youth are the fuel for implementing climate and development action".

Mohieldin's remarks came during his participation in a session on "COP27 Global Youth Statement - Opening Ceremony Handover", with participation of Dr. Ashraf Sobhy, Minister of Youth and Sports; Dr. Yasmine Fouad, Minister of Environment; and Simon Stiell, Executive Secretary of the UN Climate Convention (UNFCCC).

"Sharm El-Sheikh Climate Conference is interested in inclusivity and diversity, so it is important for all groups and parties to take part in expressing opinions, proposing solutions and implementing measures", Mohieldin said.

He added that this inclusivity was expressed by the National Initiative for Smart Green Projects, launched by the Egyptian government to localize development and climate action, which witnessed a significant participation of youth, among university students, young researchers and entrepreneurs.

"Achieving climate goals needs a social behavior change, a fair and sufficient finance, and the availability of scientific solutions", he said, pointing to the important role of youth in raising awareness regarding climate problems and solutions, and in guiding the implementation of development and climate action process as a whole.

"COP 27 may be the last hope for starting the actual implementation of climate action", he said, stressing the great importance of youth participation in the implementation process.
