For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits – called COPs – which stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’. Over that time climate change has gone from being a fringe issue to a global priority. This year will be the 26th annual summit – giving it the name COP26.
The goals of COP26 are to:
- Secure global net zero by mid-century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach
- Adapt to protect communities and natural habitats
- Mobilise finance
- Work together to deliver
