COP26 in Context
December 1, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Are you curious but confused by what happened during the UN climate talks in Glasgow, Scotland (commonly known as Conference of Parties, or COP26)?
The U.S. and other governments are claiming that the talks successfully put the world on the path to addressing the climate crisis. But many civil society groups are claiming that the talks were exclusionary and achieved little.
While the Biden administration claims it wants to be a “climate leader” internationally, domestic climate justice movements have accused the U.S. government of failing to take the climate crisis seriously. Who’s right?
Please join Institute for Policy Studies Climate Policy Director Basav Sen for a virtual presentation and interactive discussion on the politics, process, and outcome of COP26, and particularly, the relationship between U.S. negotiating positions at COP26 and our domestic and international climate policies.
