Media feature UMaine delegation to COP27 in Egypt – Isenhour et al.
Maine Public, News Center Maine and Bangor Daily News reported that nine University of Maine and University of Maine School of Law faculty and graduate students will attend the proceedings of the United Nations climate summit known as the 27th Conference of the Parties, or COP27, in Egypt next month. Cindy Isenhour, associate professor of anthropology and climate change, is one of the representatives from UMaine. “They’re framing it as the adaptation COP, so I think a lot of the emphasis this year will be on trying to make sure there’s enough finance available, particularly for the less developed and really vulnerable countries to adapt to climate change. … So I would imagine if Maine is specifically mentioned it will be in the context of a really positive example of committing to a target, and then really aggressively moving toward fulfilling that commitment,” Isenhour told Maine Public.
