Engineers Address Responses to Climate Change at COP27


IEEE joined with the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) and the Engineering Institute of Canada – Institut Canadien des ingenieurs (EIC-ICI) to provide a global engineering perspective on the roles that technology can play in delivering an equitable, sustainable and low carbon resilient world to participants at the 2022 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) held recently in Egypt.

IEEE President-Elect Saifur Rahman participated on the panel and provided insights on how to reduce carbon emissions in the power sector.  IEEE Fellow Tariq Durrani of the University of Strathcylde also participated on the panel and emphasized the need for new approaches and innovations to achieve carbon resiliency.
