COP26 is under way in Glasgow and there’s a packed agenda


Prime Minister Boris Johnson detailed a pledge to halt and reverse deforestation and land degradation by 2030.

More than 100 countries representing 85% of the world’s forests have signed up – including Brazil, Russia, Canada, Colombia, Indonesia, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

It is underpinned by £14bn ($19.2bn) in public and private funding.

The PM hailed it as a plan to stop the “great chainsaw massacre”.

The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, whose country is home to the Amazon, said: “Forests are important to me because they cover more than 60% of my country.”

“We are committed to eliminating illegal deforestation by 2030,” he added.

The journey to net-zero and 1.5C

Boris Johnson has warned the 1.5C target is the difference ‘between life and death’.

However, current national action plans to curb emissions leave the world way off track to meet global goals, and keep temperature rises to “well below” 2C above pre-industrial levels.

Countries at COP26 are under pressure to keep the less dangerous 1.5C goal in reach, deliver on climate finance to support poorer nations tackle the crisis, and finalise parts of the global Paris climate treaty.

Meanwhile, India’s Prime Minister has pledged to hit net-zero by 2070 – 20 years after the key 2050 date agreed by other countries.

Environment Secretary George Eustice welcomed India’s net-zero target as a “big step forward”, but told Sky News “they have got more to do to get there”.

The Galapagos

Ecuador has vowed to expand the Galapagos reserve by almost half.

Speaking at COP26, President Guillermo Lasso confirmed a new reserve of 23,000 square miles will be established around the islands.

The new area will expand upon an existing marine reserve of around 50,000 square miles.

Island nations are particularly vulnerable to climate change due to rising sea levels as temperatures soar.
