Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy – COP26 Outcomes: Review and Analysis
The stakes on the outcomes of COP26 in Glasgow are higher than ever. Since the last COP in 2019, the International Energy Agency has released a report advising that all new fossil fuel exploration should end entirely by 2022 in order to keep warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 F). Furthermore, in August, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released the highly anticipated AR6 Working Group 1 report outlining the dramatic changes the planet has already endured and the severity of the climatic changes ahead if immediate action is not taken. The global conversation and atmosphere around climate change are arguably more intense than ever.
Please join the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy and the Environmental the Policy & Culture Program at Northwestern University for our next webinar that will serve as a post COP26 roundup in which a panel of experts will reflect on their biggest takeaways from the event, including components of carbon removal where relevant.
The discussion will focus on a number of topics including: main outcomes, UNFCCC processes, international climate politics, nature-based solutions, industrial decarbonization and concerns for environmental NGOs.
