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.
