What should you expect from WIPO GREEN during COP26?

The 26th Conference of the Parties (COP), running from October 31 until November 12, will bring together governments from across the world to collectively agree on measures to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. The negotiations are expected to call for drastic measures to tackle climate action, in line with the Paris Agreement. This year, WIPO GREEN will co-host and participate in several side events during COP26. Here’s what you can anticipate.
