Webinar: Overcoming the COP26 Gaps - A Transformed EU External Action for a Climate-Just World

On 8 December 2021 (13:00 – 15:00 CET) a webinar is organized about overcoming the shortcomings of the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP26) held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.

Decisions made at the COP26 conference to accelerate emission reductions, increase funding for adaptation and open a dialogue on mechanisms to address the losses and damage caused by climate change have barely boosted confidence in change. In addition, the conference ended with significant shortcomings in cooperation between countries and financial and technical support. Without significant cooperation, we will not be able to achieve a climate-just world this decade.

The webinar will explore how the EU’s potential can be exploited to help overcome the shortcomings of COP26 with its economic strength, excellent diplomatic position and existing ties.

A study commissioned by the Greens /EFA group in the European Parliament from the independent climate research center E3G will try to answer this question. The study is about how to align EU foreign policy with the Paris Agreement and the European Green Agreement.
