COP 26 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow 


From October 31 to November 12, Glasgow will host the UN climate change conference (COP26) under the presidency of the United Kingdom.

The conference will be held in the Glasgow Science Centre where an ad hoc “Green Zone” that will host different exhibits, events, and workshops to raise awareness and promote climate action, has been created.
 
Delayed by a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the run-up to this year’s summit in Glasgow is the moment when countries update their plans to reduce emissions. The Conference’s agenda focuses on the green economy, sustainability, and circular economy. For instance, Countries are being asked to come forward with ambitious 2030 emissions reductions targets that align with reaching net zero by the middle of the century. Moreover, talks will rotate around the protection of indigenous communities and natural habitats. Finally, the agenda focuses on the importance of mobilizing international finance to unleash at least $100bn to secure global net zero.
