This briefing brings together, in a single easy-to-navigate directory, the statements, declarations and announcements made by governments and organizations during COP26. COP26 was the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change which took place in Glasgow, U.K., during November 2021. 197 countries were represented. At the same time, the CMP meeting of 192 countries party to the Kyoto Protocol and the CMA meeting of 196 countries party to the Paris Agreement were held. For the first time, the COP agreed to action on phasing down fossil fuels. The Paris Rulebook for delivering the Paris Agreement was also completed after six years of discussions, including the Article 6 framework for a global carbon market.
