Though 135 countries have committed to net zero emissions targets, the IPCC reports that global warming of 1.5°C will likely be exceeded during the 21st century. Alongside U.S. re-engagement and a whole-of government approach to climate change, the COP26 Summit holds promise to be a turning point in the climate crisis. As countries set their sights on economic recovery amidst COVID-19, the conference also presents an opportunity for a green recovery worldwide. However, while COP26 targets $100bn in climate finance provisions yearly, what it yields could be different.
Join AmCham as a panel of experts discuss key observations and takeaways from COP26 and the areas of the IPCC Report that were and were not addressed.
