The road ahead to COP26 - video
Glasgow is due to host COP26 in less than a year’s time, so what are the prospects for success and the biggest challenges to progress? What are the priorities of the UK Presidency of COP26? How will the COVID-19 pandemic affect the revised ‘nationally determined contributions’ to the Paris Agreement that are due to be submitted? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by a panel of experts who have many years of experience of international climate policy.
