EESI – Briefing Series on the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Glasgow
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to join us for a briefing to review what took place at the U.N. climate change conference in Glasgow—the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change—and why it matters for Congress.
With dozens of events and negotiating sessions happening at any one time during the two weeks of COP, it can be challenging to keep up with all the details. This briefing will review the key outcomes of COP26 and provide context and nuance to the main headlines coming out of the meeting. Panelists will then dive into takeaways from international, private sector, and local government perspectives.
