GLASGOW, United Kingdom, 4 June 2020: The COP26 UN Climate Change Conference, in Glasgow, will take place from November 1 to 12, 2021, the COP Bureau of the UNFCCC said.

The Summit was scheduled to take place in November 2020, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COP26 President and Secretary of State for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, Alok Sharma, said: “While we rightly focus on fighting the immediate crisis of the coronavirus, we must not lose sight of the huge challenges of climate change.

“With the new dates for COP26 now agreed, we are working with our international partners on an ambitious roadmap for global climate action between now and November 2021.

“The steps we take to rebuild our economies will have a profound impact on our societies’ future sustainability, resilience and wellbeing, and COP26 can be a moment where the world unites behind a clean resilient recovery.”
