COP 26 Briefing: what next for the climate agenda?

Talk

Friday 12 November 2021
08:30 - 09:30

Join us from Glasgow as we hear an update on COP26 negotiations from the UK High-Level Climate Action Champion team.
On the last day of COP26 we broadcast from Glasgow a policy briefing hearing from the UK High-Level Climate Action Champion team about the direction of the COP26 negotiations.
 
The briefing will review what the Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day meant for the Climate Summit and what we could expect to come out from it.
 
With the built environment responsible for over 40 per cent of climate emissions and cities consuming 70 per cent of the world energy, will the parties recognise the critical role this sector has in advancing the climate agenda?
