The Climate Briefing

In 2021, the UK is hosting the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, where politicians and experts from across the world gather to cooperate on addressing the threat of climate change.

This podcast, from the Energy, Environment and Resources Programme at Chatham House, explores the major issues that shape international debates on climate change.

Jul 21, 2021

The G20 - an international gathering of leaders from 19 major states and the European Union - has a significant role to play in coordinating global action on climate change. Accounting for around two-thirds of the world's population and by some estimates 84% of global carbon emissions, agreeing on reforms within this forum could be a game-changer ahead of COP26. 

In July 2021, G20 ministerial meetings are taking place ahead of the leaders summit in October.

To assess the prospects for progress on climate change at the G20, Ben is joined by Luca Bergamaschi, co-founder of ECCO, the Italian climate think tank.
