UN Climate Summit pushed back to November 2021

Publié: 28th mai 2020

Responding to the announcement that the UN Climate Summit is being pushed back to November 2021 ―a year after it was originally scheduled― Danny Sriskandarajah, Oxfam GB Chief Executive said:

“The postponement should not delay urgently needed action on climate change which is already increasing poverty and suffering around the world.

“As host, the UK government has the opportunity to take a global lead in creating post-pandemic plans to build back a better, greener economy and pushing countries to develop more ambitious emission reduction plans to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

“While COP26 is delayed, the promise by wealthy countries to provide $100 billion annually to help poorer nations cope with climate shocks still stands and should be delivered this year.”
