The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021. The COP26 summit brought together parties and non-state actors to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The UK is committed to working with all countries and joining forces with academia, civil society, companies and people on the frontline of climate change to inspire climate action over the COP26 Presidency year.
In this context, the COP26 Presidency has released a call to action – Knowledge for Glasgow – that highlights opportunities for researchers, innovators and engineers to support the implementation of commitments made under the Glasgow Climate Pact.
The COP26 Presidency and the UK Science and Innovation Network are hosting a webinar to officially launch the call to action. A panel discussion will address how climate scientists and policymakers can better collaborate to take the recommendations of the report forward.
A statement from the ISC will be included in the Knowledge for Glasgow document, which will be launched on the day.
