Seeing a lot of COP-26 and feeling lost amongst so many articles and posts around it?
I hope this one helps you take a step forward. The whole intent of this article is to simplify COP26 – UN Climate Change Conference for everyone and dig deeper into the WHAT, HOW and WHY.
COP, also known as the ‘Conference of the Parties’ is the United Nations’s annual climate change conference which started in the year 1995, shortly following the formation of the United Nations Climate Change Framework Convention (UNFCCC) in 1994.
All signatories of the UNFCCC come together to discuss, negotiate and strike deals to tackle the imminent global warming crisis.
Essentially, COP negotiations are centred on the legal mechanisms for governments to hold each other accountable. This year, the 12-day conference is being hosted by Glasgow, Scotland — following its recently awarded status of Global Green City which has a target to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 — and has the U.K. as the President.
Would love to hear if this was helpful.
