Cop26 climate talks in Glasgow will be delayed by a year, UN confirms
Date moved for Covid-19 travel reasons, but fears raised over delay to green recovery plans
Global talks aimed at staving off the threat of climate breakdown will be delayed by a year to November 2021 because of the coronavirus crisis, the UN has confirmed.
The summit, known as Cop26, which 196 nations are expected to attend, will now take place in Glasgow from November 1 to 12 next year, as reports had anticipated, with the UK government acting as host and president. They were originally set to take place from November 9 this year.
