Focus on COP26

Wednesday 27 October 2021

COP26 in Glasgow aims to accelerate movement towards the targets set in the 2015 Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. With the Covid-19 pandemic delaying 2020’s talks and urgent action needed to address the climate crisis, the world will be watching closely - not only the immediate outcomes, but longer-term efforts made by states and the private sector.

Featured in this podcast are:

  • David Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment
  • Kay Harrison, Climate Change Ambassador for the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade
  • Rick Saines, a partner at specialist climate change advisory and investment company Pollination
  • Kelley Kizzier, Vice President for Global Climate at nonprofit environmental advocacy group Environmental Defense Fund
