COP26: Recent Developments & Opportunities

While the manifold impacts of the coronavirus crisis have affected domestic environmental policymaking and climate talks across the world, current circumstances illustrate the greater speed and depth of the changes needed to fight climate change. The Italian-led G20 and the November COP 26 negotiations are of particular significance to pursue global coordination on the most urgent questions.

The webinar "Paving the way for COP26: recent developments and opportunities", organized by the IAI on July 13, 2021 from 5pm to 19.15pm, aimed to discuss with Minister Roberto Cingolani and international experts the main findings of the research work carried out by IAI.

A first session was dedicated to the prospects for green growth in the multilateral setting of the G20 and to the open questions to be discussed in Glasgow. A second session looked deeper into the G20 and COP26 role in strengthening climate action in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), whose green recovery is undermined by shortcomings in the development and climate finance systems.
