2021: A Landmark Year In Global Climate Policy

The year 2021 constitutes a key phase in the fight against climate change and in the global efforts to meet emissions targets in the 2015 Paris Agreement. The agreement aims to limit global warming “ideally” to 1.5 degrees Celsius (°C), targeting a five-year cycle of climate action. Countries were required to update their climate strategies, known as nationally determined contributions (NDCs), by the end of 2020, which will be a focus at this year’s 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). Much is riding on the success of COP26, and the UN has called it “a make or break” event in the fight against climate change.
