Ahead of the UK ceding the Conference of the Parties (COP) Presidency to Egypt for COP27, which takes place in Sharm El-Sheikh from Sunday 6 to Friday 18 November – the government has published a new document detailing outcomes of the 2021 Glasgow summit and the UK’s COP Presidency year
COP26 President Alok Sharma and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak have today launched a new COP26 Presidency Outcomes publication.
The new report highlights progress made during the UK’s custodianship of the COP Presidency. It also looks ahead to the COP27 summit taking place in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt from 6-18 November, and acknowledges that nations need to do more to implement the commitments of the 2021 Glasgow Climate Pact.
‘The last three years have been a unique privilege and I have been inspired by the urgency and the ambition I have heard around the world,’ said Alok Sharma.
‘The decade ahead can be one where we pull back from the precipice of climate catastrophe and unlock a just and sustainable path to prosperity for billions of people around the world.
‘To do this we must fully deliver on the promises made at COP26 and in the Glasgow Climate Pact.’
