It seems that the UK government is opting to reschedule the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 by one year, as it was supposed to take place this November in Glasgow, Scotland but has since been reconsidered due to the on-going pandemic.
The UK government has suggested that the annual UN Climate Change Conference be postponed until November of 2021. This is due to the unpredictable circumstances that global government forces are subject to facing with the current coronavirus pandemic.
The new date for the conference was proposed by the UK government, but is to be officially discussed during a meeting with the UNFCCC parties this week.
The UN Climate change conference is premised around political discussions that centre climate-based issues, government officials from developed countries then suggest different methods that aim at reducing excessive amounts of greenhouse gas emissions within their countries.
The decision to reschedule the conference is primarily due to global government bodies being preoccupied with the current health crisis that the coronavirus has inflicted upon multiple nations, world-wide.
The Climate Change Conference becomes a beacon for environmental discussions among government officials due to the exponential rise in ecological decay, imposed onto the earth by excessive pollutants.
The meeting allows for these important talks about how to reduce the excessive rate of climate disruptions, among government officials from a wide range of countries.
As the conference is threatened by the current coronavirus pandemic, it is expected that the UNFCCC meeting that is to happen this week will officially detail what is expected to happen as this year’s conference is postponed until November 2021.
