POSTPONED: UNFCCC 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26)
November 9, 2020 - November 19, 2020
COP26 will now take place November 1-12, 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland.
COP26 will be held from November 9 – 19, 2020 in Glasgow, Scotland.
COP26 is taking place five years after the signing of the Paris Agreement, the central aim of which is “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, recognising that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change.”
COP26 is the most important climate meeting since the signing of the Paris Agreement in 2015, because governments are due to deliver their climate plans and long term strategies to cut carbon emissions in line with the latest science. In addition, COP26 will be an opportunity for countries to agree on the effective and transparent implementation of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement related to international cooperation on carbon markets.
