The White House announced on Friday that President Biden will go to the COP27 international climate change forum that is taking place in Egypt, The Hill reported.

“On November 11th, President Biden will attend the 27th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt,” said White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre in an official statement.

At COP27, he will expand on the substantial work the US has done to advance the global climate battle and assist the most vulnerable in building resilience to climate consequences. He will also emphasize the need for the world to act in this crucial decade, the statement continues.

Every year, world leaders get together to review climate change developments and negotiate new initiatives to reduce global warming. The Paris Agreement was negotiated by leaders during the 2015 climate summit.

Biden previously attended the conference the previous year. The ability of the U.S. to make considerable headway in the midst of contentious climate legislation debates has been questioned at the time.

The Democrats’ environment, tax, and healthcare measure, the Inflation Reduction Act, will be something he can highlight this year. The government has made it clear that it wants to restore American credibility on the international arena following former President Trump’s rejection of climate change and environmental rollbacks.

For the G-20 Leaders’ Summit, Biden will travel to Bali, Indonesia, from November 13-16.
