UK and Chile call for ambitious climate action ahead of COP26

On 24 September 2020, the UK and Chile issued a joint call for ambition on emissions reduction, adaptation and financing plans ahead of COP26.

Speaking during the week of the United Nations General Assembly, COP26 President Designate Alok Sharma and COP25 President Carolina Schmidt urged countries to come together to tackle climate change.

The COP26 President Designate also highlighted an invitation to world leaders to attend a special virtual event on 12 December, the five-year anniversary of the Paris Agreement, to come forward with new ambitious commitments.

The COP25 President urged all countries to step up climate action by delivering more ambitious NDCs, adaptation plans, climate finance pledges and long-term strategies to net zero, as soon as possible.
