Was COP26 ”a turning point for humanity”?
- Did the climate negotiations heed the calls by British Prime minister Boris Johnson and other political leaders, civil society and scientific communities?
- In what ways did the climate meeting bring the world closer or farther away from staying below 1.5°C warming and other goals of the Paris Agreement?
- What needs to happen until the next conference of parties to the climate convention?
For a post-match analysis, the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research at Linköping University in collaboration with the Mistra Geopolitics programme gathers a prominent panel with extensive insights into the Glasgow negotiations and the way forward for the Paris Agreement.
