Around 120 leaders gathered in Glasgow today launching two weeks of global negotiations on immediate steps in combating climate change.
The world needs to secure global net zero by 2050 and halve emissions by 2030 to keep 1.5 degrees of warming in reach.
To do this the UK COP26 Presidency is calling on countries to set ambitious 2030 emissions reduction targets and take action to:
• consign coal power to history
• accelerate the move to cleaner transport modalities
• end deforestation
• finance the green transition and help the most vulnerable countries
