UN Climate Summit 2021
COP26, Glasgow, 2021
The UN's climate body (UNFCCC) decided to postpone the Glasgow climate summit from November until next year due to COVID-19. The climate summit, to be hosted by the UK for the very first time, is widely regarded across science and policy as the last opportunity for the international community to lift ambition in order to deliver the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement. In the coming months, we will continue to bring you regular updates on events, issues and perspectives relevant to the summit - whether looking at the UN talks themselves, the UK government's moves to speed decarbonisation in advance of the summit, public engagement, or anything else.
