Road to COP26: Defining success
Can COP26 become the coalescing global action to fight climate change? Heading to COP26, countries representing almost 75% of global emissions and 80% of global GDP have committed to net zero. The challenge will be to align climate action with these aspirations. The IEA estimates that commercially viable solutions are not available for 51% of the required emissions reductions. Developing countries still seek action on climate finance. What must COP26 deliver to be a success? Former US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, former California Air Resource Board head Mary Nichols, and France’s diplomatic point person for the Paris Agreement, Laurence Tubiana have all faced this challenge. Explore with them the challenges and risks to claim success.
