This year’s UN Climate Conference was held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, against a backdrop of extreme weather events around the world, an energy crisis driven by the war in Ukraine, and scientific data confirming that the world is not doing enough to fight carbon emissions and protect our planet’s future.

ICDO Executive Committee, Ms. Josipa Palac – President and Mr. Toni Pehar – Treasury, participated in COP27 to offer solutions, perspectives and experiences from ICDO’s worldwide projects focusing on climate change, sustainability, biodiversity and preservation.

In addition, ICDO was invited to attend and participate in “Global Climate Summit”, “Climate Action Innovation Zone” and “Saudi Green Initiative”.

We are honored to be among the 198 countries that have signed the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and numerous international organizations and world leaders that attended this years COP27.

"Greenhouse gas emissions keep growing. Global temperatures keep rising. And our planet is fast approaching tipping points that will make climate chaos irreversible. We are on a highway to climate hell with our foot on the accelerator."

António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations

COP27 Goals and Vision

Inclusive, rules based and ambitious, substantive outcomes, commensurate with the challenge based on science and guided by principles building on agreements, decisions, pledges and commitments, from RIO 1992 to Glasgow 2021.

We seek to accelerate global climate action through emissions reduction, scaled-up adaptation efforts and enhanced flows of appropriate finance. We recognize that ‘just transition’ remains a priority for developing countries worldwide.

We must Unite to limit global warming to well below 2c and work hard to keep the 1.5 c target alive.


COP27 should witness enhanced global agenda for action on adaptation, confirming what we agreed on in Paris and further elaborated in Glasgow pact with regard to placing adaptation at the forefront of global action.


Progress on delivery of the annual USD 100 billion will build more trust between developed and developing countries, showing that actual commitments are being fulfilled.


Governments, the private sector and civil society need to work, in tandem, to transform the way in which we interact with our planet. We must introduce new solutions and innovations that help alleviate the adverse impacts of climate change.


ICDO will continue to support indigenous communities as well as women and children worldwide through its long term projects.

Preservation and conservation of the indigenous culture and their relationship with nature is key if we want to achieve our set goals by 2030!

Working with marginalized groups, women and children and with more than 50 indigenous communities in most biodiverse areas of the world, ICDO is set to increase its activities and impact by:

  • safeguarding biodiversity;
  • fostering decrease of CO2 emissions;
  • collaborating with more indigenous communities;
  • expand its project to more countries;
  • combating climate change by increase in reforestation activities;
  • increase its conservation of biodiversity activities;
  • collaborate with more governments, international organizations and private sector;

"The global fossil fuel crisis must be a game-changer. So let us not take the 'highway to hell' but let's earn the clean ticket to heaven."
