Next Supported Event: COP26
Amid the chaos and disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Glasgow Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 26) is the first major multilateral environmental agreement to meet in person. Being held in November 2021, the COP has several challenging tasks to address for it to be a success.
The main priorities for COP 26 include:
- completing the Paris Rulebook, which means resolving Article 6 thereby finalizing the mechanics of how parties can cooperate in implementing their NDCs, using market and non-market mechanisms;
- increasing financial support, in particular the US$ 100 billion in climate finance annually for developing countries;
- ratcheting up ambition through, among others, strengthening NDCs, and planning pathways to net-zero carbon emissions in 2050;
- address the establishment of a Global Goal on Adaptation under the Paris Agreement
Through the launch of “Negotiating the Paris Agreement: The Insider Stories”, our podcast “Summits Unplugged” and other capacity building activities, we have provided the key stakeholders with the skills to make sure the climate negotiations are a success and “we can keep 1.5 alive”.
