COP26 postponed to November 2021

The 26th United Nations International Climate Conference (COP26), which was scheduled to take place in Glasgow (Scotland) in November 2020, has been postponed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The World Climate Conference will now be held from November 1 to 12, 2021, according to the COP26 Twitter account.

The postponement of COP26 comes following the British government’s request to postpone this major global meeting for the environment by one year.

The London request was validated Thursday in consultation with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Italy, partner of this summit.

Last April, UN climate change officials postponed COP26 indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, in agreement with British and Italian authorities.

According to the British media, the governments of the participating countries had initially estimated that the summit could be convened in the first three months of 2021, but the United Kingdom considered that “a much longer period is necessary”.
