Under2 Coalition at COP26
The United Kingdom hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow from Monday, 1 November – Friday, 12 November 2021, in partnership with Italy. The summit brought parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
At the same time, 60 state and regional governments met as members of the Under2 Coalition to find new ways forward in tackling the climate crisis. The Under2 Coalition General Assembly convened on 7 November at Strathclyde University on subjects including transitioning to low carbon energy, transport and industry infrastructure; methane; agriculture, forestry and other land use; reducing methane emissions; and accelerating finance and investment.
Further, Faster, Together
States and regions continue to be vital to global efforts to fight climate change and Under2 Coalition member governments have each adopted plans for a wide range of ambitious actions across different sectors to address the climate crisis - with targets of 2030 or earlier.
