“The humanity has lost”. That’s how Carlos Bocuhy, president of the Brazilian Institute For Environmental Protection (PROAM) defined the commitments made by countries at the end of the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in the face of the current climate emergency, in an article for the O Eco portal.
One of the main focuses of COP26, which brought together representatives from almost 200 countries, was to establish a series of measures to limit global warming to 1.5° C by 2030. UN also considers the Glasgow Climate Pact signed at the conference as insufficient for the task ahead.Sources
