Towards the Multilevel Action COP
Shifting gears at COP25 Chile-Madrid to boost multilevel climate action
COP26, to be held in Glasgow in November 2020, is our critical moment to accelerate global climate action in the next decade. This coming decade is the most vital period to reach the climate neutrality and 1.5oC targets of the Paris Agreement. The second NDCs to be presented in Glasgow must reflect the urgency of ambitious action to respond to the climate emergency and seize the opportunities of the transformative power of the urban world.
The success of COP26 in Glasgow in 2020 depends on the full engagement of local and regional governments in the preparation of the 2nd NDCs at home throughout the year.
