November

COP26 1st-12th November 2021 | Glasgow

The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021.

The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The UK Presidency of COP26 has set out 4 main goals for the conference:

  • Step up mitigation efforts: Further reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to keep the 1.5 degree Celsius goal within reach.
  • Strengthen adaptation and resilience: Protect the global population, and particularly the most vulnerable regions of the world, from the already unavoidable impacts of climate change.
  • Mobilise USD 100 billion in climate finance: Since Paris 2015, developed countries have endeavoured to allocate funding every year to support the decarbonisation of developing countries. This is because the UNFCCC is based on the principle of “common but differentiated responsibility”, i.e. the entire global community needs to take part in the efforts to combat climate change, but those efforts need to be commensurate with the capabilities of each signatory.
  • Enhance international collaboration: In particular, finalising the Paris Rulebook.
