APPCCG launches COP26 inquiry

The All-Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group is launching a series of evidence session to explore the UK's preparations for COP26

This project will look at the key procedural issues to be addressed in the run up to COP26 as well as the substantive issues to be debated at the conference. With the conference now postponed and covid19 requiring a significant Government coordination effort, the first evidence sessions in the series will focus on the new challenges facing conference preparations.

The project is led by five cross-party co-chairs:

  • Bim Afolami MP (Con)
  • Barry Gardiner MP (Lab)
  • Daisy Cooper MP (Lib Dem)
  • Alan Brown MP (SNP)
  • Caroline Lucas MP (Green)

Each evidence session will hear from a number of expert witnesses taking questions from the co-chairs and other parliamentarians. Sessions will be open to view for APPCCG members. Until further notice all sessions will be held virtually.

The inquiry will result in a series of outputs focused on mapping out a blueprint for a pathway to a successful COP26.
