Climate change remains an imminent threat at the core of many discussions between heads of state, industry and civil society. These stakeholders see recovery from the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to build back better by creating greener and more sustainable economies.
Deemed by many as “the world’s last best chance to get runaway climate change under control”, the COP26 Summit takes place this November in Glasgow. The 190+ world leaders will use the occasion to update their emission reduction plans following the 2015 Paris Agreement. The focus of the conference is set against four main goals: a step change in commitments to emissions reduction, strengthening adaptation to climate change impacts, getting finance flowing for climate action, and enhancing international collaboration.
Join this EURACTIV Virtual Conference to discuss how the global community will have to work together to address the climate challenge at COP26. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres described 2021 as a “make or break year” in the fight against the climate emergency and underlined that long-term commitments must be matched by immediate actions to launch the decade of transformation that people and the planet so desperately need.
With global political will arguably the strongest in many years, can this COP be a game-changer?
