COP President Alok Sharma will tell world leaders that “current crises should increase, not diminish, our determination” to honour commitments made at COP26, during a speech at Glasgow’s Scottish Event Campus to mark six months since the conclusion of COP26. Sharma is expected to stress the urgency of countries fulfilling promises made at COP26 and that the global community must move much faster in taking climate action over the next six months, than over the last. He will also remind countries that the Glasgow Climate Pact signed at COP26 commits countries to “revisit and strengthen” their nationally determined contributions during 2022. Sharma recently co-chaired the May Ministerial Meeting on Implementation in Copenhagen, at which over 40 countries renewed their efforts to deliver commitments and pledges made at COP26 and within the Glasgow Climate Pact. Today’s event also sees the publication of the COP26 Sustainability Report detailing the legacy of COP26 on the city of Glasgow.
