The 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) is a pivotal moment for the world to unite around a shared vision for a healthier, fairer, more resilient future.
Unity starts with rebuilding trust among countries around the world. The stakes could not be higher.
The science is clear: The impacts of climate change are already impacting every country in the world, and no region will be left untouched. Meanwhile, vulnerable communities — those least responsible for creating the problem — are feeling the effects of a warming planet most acutely. For the sake of people’s lives and livelihoods, global leaders must move from words to action.
COP26 is the time for bold leadership on climate change.
Held in Glasgow, Scotland from October 31 to November 12, 2021, COP26 is a key moment for countries, cities, businesses and more to keep the Paris Agreement on climate change on track and put forward ambitious, equitable solutions for a zero-carbon future.
WRI’s experts are closely tracking the COP26 negotiations, providing resources to understand what’s at stake and identifying critical areas for progress. Watch this Hub closely for articles, research, webinars and other resources.
Success at the COP26 climate summit this November hinges on restoring this trust and uniting the world to fight the climate crisis by reaching consensus on a balanced, just, equitable and ambitious outcome. At this Allied for Climate Transformation (ACT2025) webinar hosted on September 23, speakers from around the world laid out what COP26 must achieve to meet the needs of developing and climate-vulnerable countries.
