    COP26 – What can we expect

    Amid the Covid-19 pandemic that has devastated the world, humanity faces a greater challenge – the climate crisis. The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) findings project catastrophic consequences, including extreme hot temperatures, heavy precipitation, increased droughts that affect water, food and energy security. COP26, taking place in Glasgow from 31 October-12 November, aims to raise the climate ambition through nations’ pledges via the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This webinar will look at whether large emitters will produce ambitious targets and whether the carbon budget will be allocated in a just manner. It will also discuss Malaysia’s updated NDCs. The focus is on whether COP26 will lead to sufficient outcomes or fail to address the impending climate emergency.
