[POSTPONED] UNFCCC COP 26

The 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) to the UNFCCC has been postponed due to COVID-19.

COP26 was scheduled to take place from 9-20 November 2020, in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. Dates for a rescheduled conference in 2021 will be set out in due course following further discussion with parties.

According to a press release from the UNFCCC, rescheduling will help "ensure all parties can focus on the issues to be discussed at this vital conference and allow more time for the necessary preparation to take place."
