A year has passed since the masterclass in multilateralism that was COP21. But the momentum for climate action has kept on growing. The Paris Agreement is coming into force in record time. Yet every month since COP21 has been the warmest ever documented. The real question is no longer if political and economic leaders can re-build the world for a low carbon resilient future, but will they do it fast enough?
There is plenty to look forward to in our COP kick-off newsletter; we spell out what to expect from COP22, give our take on the COP's coincidence with the US elections and how US politics has affected climate diplomacy, and CEO Nick Mabey outlines his thoughts on how climate politics are changing after reaching global climate agreement in Paris. Finally we’ve included the article you seem to keep coming back to, at 28,000 views and counting ‘Judging COP21 outcome and what’s next for climate action’.
Thanks for reading,
