The United Nations Climate Conference will be the largest international climate change summit ever hosted by Britain, with over 30,000 delegates – including heads of states, climate experts and campaigners – expected to attend.
It will be hosted by Britain in partnership with Italy at the SEC Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, from Nov 1 to 12. Malaysia will also be attending.
The following are quick facts about this important meeting:
1) Italy will host a major youth event as well as the Pre-COP Summit in September 2021. COP stands for Conference of the Parties, which are countries that have signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The conference in 2021 will be its 26th meeting, hence COP26.
