From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, was the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference. It is being held in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, between 31 October and 12 November 2021.[1] The conference is the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the third meeting of the parties to the Paris Agreement.

This conference is the first time that parties will commit to lower greenhouse gas emissions and the raising temperatures of climate change.[2]

It was supposed to be held in November 2020, but was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

On 1 September 2021, the first pledges and the first meeting of COP26 had started.
