COP26 delay: Fight against climate crisis cannot wait

Responding to the latest reports of a delay to COP26 until Spring 2022, Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for the Climate Emergency, Wera Hobhouse MP commented: “Liberal Democrats are calling on the Government for immediate clarification over the potential delay to COP26. It is deeply unfair to leave developing nations in the lurch with so many conflicting reports about the future of the COP.

“The strongest efforts must be made to keep the COP on track for this year to ensure more time is not lost in the fight against the climate crisis. If another delay to the Spring is unavoidable, then the Conservative Government must guarantee that developing nations and NGOs have the same access to the negotiations as usual.”
