Meet some of Scotland’s leading climate researchers talking about their work in the lead up to the UN Climate Change Conference COP26.

The UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties COP26 in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021.  The COP26 summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
