The 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) to the UNFCCC is expected to take place from 9-19 November 2020, in Glasgow, UK
The UK has been chosen to host the major UN climate change summit at the end of 2020. The eyes of the world will zero in on the UK as senior politicians from all the world’s countries come to Glasgow to negotiate the acceleration of efforts to tackle climate change.
Because the UK recently set a net zero emissions target, that puts it in a position of leadership to call on other nations to increase climate ambition and strengthen mitigation targets.
