Debrief from Glasgow: Unpacking Key Implications of COP 26 for Canada WEBINAR


As #COP26 concludes, join our "Debrief from Glasgow" webinar to unpack key implications for Canada with representatives from government, civil society and academia. Moderated by Dean @JuttaBrunnee on Nov. 30 at 12:00 ET. With @CANIntl @Indigenous_ca @CEENRG #canpoli #climate


The 26th conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 26) concluded on November 13th with the announcement of a Glasgow Climate Pact at a critical moment for action on climate change. Indeed, the IPCC recently confirmed in its Sixth Assessment Report the need to significantly accelerate action to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees and to meet the other goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement.


In this context, we invite you to join a webinar that will unpack key outcomes of COP 26, including progress and shortcomings with regard to mitigation ambition, climate finance, market mechanisms and Indigenous peoples’ rights. Speakers will discuss legal and political implications of the Glasgow Climate Pact from the perspectives of the federal government, civil society, and academia.


Canada has a legal and policy framework to respond to the climate emergency, including a revised NDC target of 40-45% reduction in emissions by 2030 and a net-zero target for 2050 that was recently adopted in the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act. What does COP 26 mean for their successful achievement?
