What to expect from the COP26 Climate Conference? Shifts in global attitudes and diplomatic strategies Ifri Closed Videoconference

In spite of President Biden’s Leaders Summit in April, there has been little improvement in national climate pledges. The world is still heading for a >2.5°C warming and the 1.5°C trajectory looks increasingly unlikely, if not impossible. Chances to bridge the pledges gap before COP26 in Glasgow from 1 to 12 November 2021 are limited and climate talks are now at risk of being derailed by the pandemic, the US-China rivalry, tensions over climate finance and the looming energy price crisis.

However, the latest survey from the Pew Research Center also confirms that a record high share of citizens in advanced economies are greatly concerned about the impact of climate change. This webinar will discuss these shifts in global perception, their influence on international climate negotiations and the implications for Europe’s climate diplomacy.
