New date for COP 26 summit

The COP 26 international climate change summit, originally set for November 2020, will now take place from 1-12 November 2021, in Glasgow.

Speaking to the BBC, COP26 President Alok Sharma said: "While we rightly focus on fighting the immediate crisis of the coronavirus, we must not lose sight of the huge challenges of climate change."

"The steps we take to rebuild our economies will have a profound impact on our societies' future sustainability, resilience and wellbeing and COP26 can be a moment where the world unites behind a clean resilient recovery.

The UN Climate Change Executive Secretary, Patricia Espinosa, said: "If done right, the recovery from the Covid-19 crisis can steer us to a more inclusive and sustainable climate path."
