    • News

This week, Jonathan Pershing, Deputy Special Envoy for Climate at the U.S. Department of State, joins Joseph Majkut (CSIS) to look at what to expect from the upcoming COP26 meetings in Glasgow. Dr. Pershing discusses what is at stake for these international negotiations, which countries are stepping up their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and which are lagging on their national commitments. They also discuss what the Biden Administration brings to this year’s meetings, whether Congress will have climate legislation in place before the meetings begin, and how the U.S. has been coordinating with other countries to raise ambitions, and hopefully ensure a successful agreement coming out of COP26.
