COP26 (26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change) enters its second week of discussions in Glasgow, Scotland. The central theme of the event this Monday is “adaptation, loss and damage”. World leaders will discuss how to adapt economies and societies to avoid the estimate that, by 2030, climate change could push more than 100 million people into poverty.
During the week, other panels will also discuss the impact of climate change on women, girls and minorities, how science and innovation are crucial in providing solutions to limit global temperature rise, ways to accelerate the transition to free modes of transport emissions and climate actions in urban spaces.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, host of COP26, said ministers and experts must return to the negotiating table willing to “make ambitious commitments to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C”.
At the Brazilian pavilion in Glasgow, green growth, sustainable agriculture and forest protection will be discussed.
This is considered the largest Climate Conference in history, with almost 40,000 subscribers. Last week, leaders and negotiators from nearly 200 countries and companies announced initiatives to eliminate the use of coal as a fuel, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and eliminate illegal deforestation by 2030.
