Conference of the parties.
What is the full form of COP 26?
COP stands for Conference of the Parties, and will be attended by countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty agreed in 1994. The 2021 meeting will be the 26th meeting and that’s why it is called COP 26.
Where and when will the COP 26 be held?
It was due to take place in Glasgow in Scotland in November last year with more than 200 world leaders due to attend, but it was delayed for a year because of the coronavirus pandemic. The COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference, hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy, will take place from 31 October to 12 November 2021 in the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow, UK. Oh and yes, I Anita Soina, will be attending. I would love to engage, learn and amplify the voices of MAPA (Most Affected People and Areas) having come from an indigenous community in Kenya i.e Maasai also regarded as pastoralists or minorities.
