In the run-up to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021, the Forum is fostering public-private partnerships to take bold action on the escalating climate crisis.
As part of the race to net-zero, the Forum’s Climate Action Platform is helping businesses, governments, and NGOs accelerate and scale ambition and partnerships needed to drive a sustainable and inclusive future.
How to protect biodiversity, implement natural climate solutions and finance the transition to net-zero are just some of the important issues at stake. And while momentum is building, the commitment and action gap is still significant. The Climate Action Platform will feature innovative solutions that will help close the gap this decade.
Along with this year's COP26 UN climate talks, COP15, the UN biodiversity summit tasked with agreeing a new deal to protect nature, is also taking place.
There's a clear link between climate change and poor mental health outcomes in developing countries. We need a systems approach to find solutions.
