About the webinar
This year’s annual UN climate summit (COP26) has been described as one of the last chances to limit global heating and keep the critical Paris Agreement goal of 1.5C within reach. But what happens after the negotiations close in Glasgow in November? And what implications will the announcements and commitments made during the summit have for the UK?
The Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit will host a briefing where the panel of experts will:
- Discuss the successes and shortcomings of COP26.
- Provide an overview of what was agreed and committed to at the summit and assess the key opportunities and challenges ahead.
- Explore what needs to happen after the summit to get on track to achieving the Paris Agreement’s long term goals.
- Examine the political implications for the UK Government in the wake of the summit and how it will deliver its decarbonisation objectives.
- What is expected of the UK both in the short term and longer-term if it is to be recognised as a climate leader.
