A successful COP26 is at the top of the Government’s agenda. I regularly raise climate change and COP26 in my bilateral meetings. Most recently, during my visit to the US and attendance at the UN General Assembly, I raised climate change with the heads of state or government from Brazil, Colombia, South Korea, Turkey, and the US. I co-hosted a climate roundtable with the UN Secretary General where we called on major economies to be more ambitious in cutting emissions and encouraged developed countries to increase mobilisation of climate finance to meet the $100 billion goal. Details of my meetings are published and can be found on Gov.uk.
