In the spirit of stubborn optimism, I'm crowdsourcing a list of COP-firsts.

#COP27 was far from perfect (and that's an understatement!) but some pretty incredible things did happen for the first time ever (please add!)
Another first in the #LossAndDamage realm: #COP27 agreed to set up the #SantiagoNetwork on L&D

It will provide a match-making service between countries suffering from loss and damage and those organisations that can support them to respond.
