After COP26, What Next?

COP26 is the most important climate talk this year, and the most important climate conference since the Paris Agreement in 2015. But what happens after the negotiations have closed in Glasgow in November? 

In this panel discussion, bringing to a close our Climate Talks series, which began in January 2021, a panel of climate scientists, policymakers and activists will come together to review the successes and shortcomings of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26).  

The panel will give a breakdown of what was agreed and committed to at the conference to ensure that the world reduces its carbon emissions by half by the end of the decade and to reach Net Zero by 2050 and will assess the challenges to nations committing to those commitments. 

Speakers include: 

  • Dr Radhika Khosla: Research Director of the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development and Associate Professor at the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment, University of Oxford 
  • Wanjuhi NjorogeClimate activist, forest restoration advocate, entrepreneur and founder of People, Planet Africa
  • Ritula Shah (Chair)Journalist and news presenter on BBC Radio, and the main presenter of The World Tonight on BBC Radio 4
