The 26th UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP26) will be held in Glasgow on 1-12th November 2021. Over 30,000 delegates will convene to agree on actions to address the climate crisis. We need internationally-coordinated action in order to effectively mitigate and adapt to climate change, and the discussions at and during the run-up to COP26 are vital to ensure this.
Professor Nathalie Seddon, NbSI Director, has been appointed as a Friend of COP. Together with 24 experts from a diversity of sectors and a wide range of countries, she will advise the COP presidency and help guide the decision-making process. Nathalie will be sharing her knowledge on how to implement effective, sustainable and just nature-based solutions, in accordance with the NbS guidelines, which were sent to Rt Hon Alok Sharma (COP26 President) in early 2020, and the conclusions drawn at NbSI’s Digital Dialogues virtual event in July.
