What is COP26?
COP26 is the next annual UN climate change conference.
COP stands for Conference of the Parties, and the summit is attended by the countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty that came into force in 1994.
This is the 26th COP summit and is hosted in partnership between the UK and Italy. The conference is held in Glasgow from 1-12 November 2021, a year later than planned due to delays caused by the COVID pandemic.
COP26 is critical because it’s the first moment when countries must set out more ambitious goals for ending their contribution to climate change under the Paris Agreement.
