With COP26 just around the corner (October 31 – November 12), it’s the perfect time to outline the likely agenda and the ways in which scientists can get themselves involved. COP26 will provide the setting for world leaders to negotiate climate policies, targets, and the next steps that need to be taken to reduce global emissions. The decisions made at COP26 will have a huge impact on the world’s future climate policies and whether we’re able to stay under 1.5 °C or 2.0 °C of warming.
This month’s EGU Science for Policy Newsletter will outline the key issues that will be discussed during COP26, new European climate initiatives that might feed into the new climate targets, and how scientists can get involved in them! You can also read more details in this month’s GeoPolicy blog post.
