    On 10 November 2022, Policy Forum featured an opinion piece by Himangana Gupta (Research Fellow and Academic Associate, UNU-IAS) on the expected outcomes of COP27, with a focus on adaptation, loss and damage, and finance. Policy Forum is an online platform for public policy debate and analysis managed by the Asia and the Pacific Policy Society (APPS).

However, wrangling 198 parties that are negotiating for 7.9 billion people is no easy task.”
