Glasgow COP26: Highlights And Images Of Main Proceedings For 2 November 2021

It was a day of contrasts at the Glasgow Climate Change Conference. High-level events continued alongside technical negotiations. World leaders bustled room to room, while civil society’s anger with the limited access to the talks continued to grow. 

Highlights included:

  • Finance, forest, and other announcements from the World Leaders Summit; and
  • Negotiations continuing or beginning on key issues.

Norway announced it would double its climate finance commitment to USD 1.6 billion by 2026, while Denmark pledged USD 1 billion by 2023 and Japan promised USD 10 billion in the next five years. In a high-level event, US Climate Envoy John Kerry suggested that, if Japan’s contribution would be USD 2 billion next year and could be used to mobilize another USD 6 billion in co-financing, then developed countries may meet the USD 100 billion goal in 2022.
