The sun has set here in #SharmElSheikh but there's still no #COP27 deal, 24 hours after talks were supposed to end.

However we may be close, as there appears to be a breakthrough on #LossAndDamage. All eyes on 🇺🇸 to see if they'll accept it.
I'm hearing there's been a shift from the Americans in the last hours here at #COP27.

They are ready to agree to creating a fund to help poor countries deal with the consequences of climate change - but only if it doesn't tie compensation to a determination of liability.
This #LossAndDamage u-turn is a big step by 🇺🇸and would not have been possible without the 🇪🇺's surprise reversal to its opposition on Thursday.

It may be that the Americans feel backed into a corner by the Europeans here - Biden doesn't want to be the villain who killed #COP27

Starkes Signal an die Klimakonferenz! Trotz Energiekrise beschließt die EU mehr Ambition beim Klimaschutz. In der Nacht hat die EU sich auf rechtsverbindliche höhere Verpflichtungen zur Speicherung von Treibhausgasen bei der Landnutzung geeinigt #LULUCF Ein Thread.
Die neue #LULUCF Verordnung regelt die Einspeicherung von CO2 im Boden und Wäldern. Gestern Nacht haben sich die Verhandlungsteams von Europaparlament, EU-Mitgliedsstaaten und EU-Kommission im #Trilog geeinigt, bis 2030 310 Millionen Tonnen CO2 in Böden und Wäldern zu binden.
Damit wird überall in Europa die Waldnutzung natürlicher, mehr Humus wird auf landwirtschaftlichen Flächen im Boden bleiben und Moore werden nasser bleiben. Damit nützt Klimaschutz auch naturnäherer Landwirtschaft und dem Naturschutz!

Attempt to disrupt the press conference for #AlaaAbdelfattah at #COP27

“Egyptian ‘citizens’ attempted to derail & disturb the press conference giving us all a small sense of the regime of fears & silencing in the country right now” @amnesty’s @AgnesCallamard #FreeAlaa #SaveAlaa Image

“First he tried to give a speech and smear Alaa and Sanaa and then he began yelling and whatnot so security took him out”

We’re excited to announce that @Ledger_Works ‘Eco Connect’ is now live on the @Hedera mainnet - enabling us to address the most critical issues with offsets in the voluntary carbon market (VCM) today 🌍 #COP27 #TogetherForImplementation
Ledger Works’ Eco Connect will benefit the #Hedera ecosystem by providing an API and explorer (Eco Explore) to make Guardian assets discoverable and searchable. They will serve as the foundational layer of the carbon offset marketplaces on the network.
Through this, digital environmental assets generated by the Guardian (e.g. @TymlezBV, @dovuofficial, @civicledger) are now discoverable to Regenerative Finance (#ReFi) markets and any stakeholders interested in auditing credits, emissions, and other ecological assets on Hedera.

Earlier this month, the SIF began a program of close engagement with @verrastandards & @goldstandard, the standard-setting NGOs that verify & register the majority of the world’s voluntary carbon offsets, including carbon reduction & removal credits 🧵 #TogetherForImplementation
As we approach #COP27, it's clear we have a lot of work to do building on #COP26 milestones. In partnership with government institution's, we must create & adopt new innovative tools to accelerate climate action. This is where regenerative (#ReFi) and #Web3 can play a key role.
In two detailed policy commentaries, one with 24 other climate-forward teams in the #ReFi community, we submitted a strong case for tokenization & dMRV driven traceability of carbon credits in the Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCMs) - focussing on Verra & Gold Standard's registries.

“Alaa has spent the last 10 years – a quarter of his life – in prison, for words he has written,” a letter reads, signed by 15 Nobel laureates on Wednesday.
“As Nobel laureates, we believe in the world-changing power of words – and the need to defend them if we are to build a more sustainable, genuinely fairer future.”
The letter demanded governments, companies, and environmental groups to pressure the #EgyptianRegime to free political prisoners before #COP 27, which starts next week in #SharmElSheikh.
