This blog post assesses the outcomes of the UN climate change conference "COP26", which convened in Glasgow, Scotland, between 31 October and 13 November 2021. It assesses what COP26 actually delivered, what this implies for the implementation of the Paris Agreement and international climate cooperation, and what remains to be done as the multilateral climate process moves towards COP27 in Egypt in 2022.
