Experts say that this year’s UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), to be held in Glasgow on 31 October-12 November 2021, will decide whether the world can achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, as set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement. COP26 comes at a critical juncture as nearly 200 countries are expected to resubmit their greenhouse gas reduction targets. The new figures will allow experts to predict if the world will be able to limit the worst effects of global warming based on standards set in the Paris Agreement.
