What’s at stake in Glasgow? – The appointment of COP26 represents an important final call for necessary and urgent measures to prevent climate change from spiraling out of control, in the opinion of many observers. The recent climate report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations (IPCC)red code for humanityby UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, highlighting that “the climate is changing faster and more rapidly than expected, while drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, curbing global warming and tackling the climate crisis” The action taken at the global level for this is still completely insufficient.

Frequent and serious.
faced it climate emergency Countries do not present themselves with very encouraging signs on the eve of COP26.

With the goal of climate neutrality by 2050 Anthropogenic emissions and removal of greenhouse gases.
The core economies gathered around the G20 grouping show very mixed signs.

So what is expected from COP26 is a instant gear change Which first implies a credible and substantial increase in commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, particularly by major economies. must be mobilized in the inevitable end financial resources $100 billion a year promises to accompany, Energy transition, technology transfer and adaptation measures, especially in developing countries.
Therefore the role of civil society and non-governmental organizations in Glasgow to put pressure on the representatives of the various countries will be crucial for a change in the negotiations.
