What responsibility do China, the EU, UK and US have for success at COP26? - 30 June 2021

Please note that this event has passed.


Decisions made in Beijing, Brussels, London and Washington have significant implications for the world’s climate. The last nine months have seen statements signalling an intention to increase the climate mitigation plans of China, the EU and the United States, in particular, which has already been having an impact on other countries, such as Japan and South Korea, who have proposed more rapid cuts in their domestic greenhouse gas emissions. This session discusses the climate relationship between China, the EU, UK and US, the domestic challenges they face and the responsibility that they collectively have for the outcome of COP26.
