PhD researcher, Robbie Mallett (UCL) attended COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, with the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative. During the conference he gave talks and appeared on panels in the Cryosphere Pavilion. As well as running the pavilion, the ICCI released the 2022 State of The Cryosphere Report, which Robbie helped to launch to the media and COP participants.

Robbie and the ICCI also campaigned for greater recognition of the cryosphere in COP negotiations. This year the cryosphere was specifically mentioned in the conference’s cover declaration for the first time, and the ICCI coordinated a new multinational coalition, named the “Ambition on Melting Ice”: https://iccinet.org/ambition-on-melting-ice/
