Glasgow Climate Pact Adopted

COP26 ended on Saturday night in Glasgow with the adoption of the Glasgow Climate Pact. National governments must strengthen their nationally determined contributions by next year, it said, also calling for an annual summit of ministers and for the UN to convene a heads of state summit. It called for phase out of “inefficient” fossil fuel subsidies and “phase down” of coal. Developing countries were able to get included a reference to “providing targeted support” for their efforts to fight climate change.
