World leaders and diplomats have just concluded their deliberations at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) to negotiate a global climate agreement and update their countries' plans for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. COP26 is widely regarded as a crucial opportunity to achieve pivotal, transformational change in global climate policy. Countries were asked to set bold targets to phase out carbon-emitting energy sources, end deforestation, invest in resilient infrastructure, and provide financing to support sustainable development.

IIASA and the Energy Analysis and Policy program (EAP) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are hosting an energy and climate webinar to discuss the outcomes of COP26 and implications for climate action around the world. What happened at COP26, what comes next, and what does it mean for you? 

This is an online event that will take place on Zoom, please register to receive a link.
