COP26: Welcome to 2025; Where Early Action is the Default
This event is an urgent call for ambitious commitments to avert and minimise loss and damage of climate change. The event will introduce reach/scale that Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership (REAP) can make if its full potential is realised; it tells the story of local leadership on early action, brings the focus on target countries leading early warning early action.
During the event, Start Network will showcase new donor commitments to anticipatory action. Tirtha Prasad Saikia, Director of North-East Affected Area Development Society (NEADS) in India, will represent Start Network in a video that showcases leaders commitments around the world to scale early action.
This event is part of the UK Presidency Pavilion at COP26, that will support the longstanding goals of the UK’s COP26 Presidency, as well as celebrate and share the lessons of UK climate leadership and successes.
About the UK COP26 Presidency Programme
In November, the UK, together with its partners Italy, will host an event many believe to be the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control. Glasgow will be the culmination of work by the UK Presidency and globally over the course of 2020 and 2021.
Progressing the negotiations will be at the heart of the summit. Running alongside the negotiations, the Presidency events will accelerate urgent action to secure global net zero by mid-century and keep 1.5°C within reach; help communities and natural habitats to adapt to the impacts of climate change; demonstrate that public and private finance is being mobilised for the climate; and bring countries, businesses, civil society, and citizens together to deliver on the Paris Agreement.
This event and all UK Pavilion events will be live streamed on the UK Government YouTube channel
