Glasgow, Scotland – Environmental Defence is in Glasgow for the U.N. climate negotiations (COP26), the most important climate meeting since the Paris Agreement was signed six years ago. At COP26, countries will need to significantly raise their level of ambition on climate action in order to keep global warming below the danger threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
In particular, Environmental Defence will be looking for much stronger action from Canada with respect to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, providing international climate financing to assist developing countries in adapting to climate impacts, and stopping the expansion of oil and gas production. The trading rules of the Paris Agreement (Article 6) will also be an important issue to be discussed and finalized.
