What is COP26?
For nearly 30 years, world governments have been meeting together every year to create a unified response to the climate change emergency. Under the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), all countries in the world are bound by an agreement to “avoid dangerous climate change”, and to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This year is the 26th anniversary of the climate summit, postponed for a year due to Covid-19; it will be hosted by the UK in Glasgow and attended by 120 world leaders. Around 25,000 delegates are also expected to attend.
