The UK has sketched out its agenda for the COP26 Climate Summit, publishing details of the ‘presidency programme’ which will run alongside the intensive climate negotiations at the two-week conference. Under the government’s plans, each day of the two-week summit has been allocated a different focus area, apart from the first two days of the summit which are dedicated to a meeting of world leaders and Sunday 7th November which is a designated rest day. Clean energy, zero emission transport, nature protection, climate adaptation and cities, regions and the built environment are among the daily themes the government hopes to highlight through the Glasgow Summit. And on a day dedicated to youth and public empowerment, young people will have an opportunity to interview government ministers on stage, according to a report published this morning in the Guardian.
