What is COP26
COP stands for "Conference of the Parties", it's an annual conference of world leaders that negotiate actions to fight against global warming and climate change.
The parties are the now 197 States that signed up to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the UN's climate body with the mission of preventing irreparable human interference with the climate system.
COP has been meeting almost every year since 1955 and acts as a decision-making body for the UNFCCC, pushing for higher climate ambitions among States and driving action in the fight against global warming.
Why is COP26 important?
This year's COP is the first opportunity for nations to finalise their strategies in terms of emissions reductions and review the commitments made in the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement.
Under this agreement, countries agreed on limiting global warming to less than 2 ºC above pre-industrial levels, with the ambition of stopping at 1.5 ºC.
As the window of opportunity to remain under the 1.5 ºC threshold shortens, bold action from member states will be key if we wish to avoid dangerous and possibly irreparable consequences on Earth's climate system.
