UK urged to tie green recovery from Covid-19 crisis to Cop26 summit
Climate experts push Britain, as talks host, to work on ‘zero carbon’ route from pandemic
The UK government must urgently set out clear plans on a green recovery from the coronavirus crisis if the delayed UN climate summit is to be a success, say leading experts.
The climate talks known as Cop26 and scheduled to be held in Glasgow, are expected to be postponed by a year from their original date this November, dashing hopes that the summit would be swiftly reconvened. A formal decision on the delay will be taken by the UN Thursday evening.
