Just creating a space to start discussing this years COP26 and see who is potentially up for going to it in Glasgow this November?
Forestry, carbon industry and afforestation are all pertinent topics at this years COP and the LWA will be there with bells on together with Via Campesina brothers and sisters from around the world.
but just to recap – what is COP26 and why is it immportant?
It’s a UN-led annual meeting set up to assess progress on tackling climate change
COP stands for Conference of the Parties. The parties in question are countries that have ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
The UNFCCC is an international environmental treaty that came into force on 21 March 1994
The first COP meeting took place in Berlin, Germany, in 1995
COP26, in November, will see about 200 world leaders meet in Glasgow to agree a new, long-term deal on rising temperatures
It’s seen as particularly important because the Madrid COP last year left a raft of complex issues unresolved
