The decisive two weeks to fight climate change have arrived.
The 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP26) has started in Glasgow, Scotland. It will run until November 12th.
At this important event, leaders from all over the world are expected to agree on how to accelerate global action to address the climate crisis.
The goals of COP26 are that the temperature never rises above 1,5 degrees Celsius. States must therefore commit to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and investing in restoring ecosystems.
It also takes a lot of money to achieve these goals. This must be done by both countries and private companies to combat climate change.
In all this, the most important thing is the participation of all countries.
»COP26 will be successful if an agreement is reached that will build on a fair approach to the 1,5 degree Celsius target,« said Barbara Kvac of Focus.
This is a milestone that would make it possible to cope with the climate crisis.
Unfortunately, we could break that target soon … To prevent this from happening, we must immediately step up our efforts to prevent further warming.
»A recent report by the IPCC and the UNFCCC has shown that we need to act as quickly and effectively as possible. The COP26 climate summit must offer solutions. It must address the gaps in achieving emissions reductions and adaptation to climate change, as well as the financing of climate action,« explains Barbara Kvac.
IPCC is The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is an intergovernmental body of the United Nations responsible for advancing knowledge on human-induced climate change.
UNFCCC is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change established an international environmental.
