The talks aim to make major pledges to cut human-triggered greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and limit the increase in the world average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius that is necessary since pre-industrial times in order to avert the worst impacts of climate change.

“Delegates from the LDC Group remain concerned about the logistics of getting to Glasgow,” Sonam Phuntsho Wangdi of Bhutan, head of the group of 46 LDCs, said in a statement.
Almost 20 LDCCs, including Ethiopia, Haiti and Bangladesh, are on the UK “red list” which means that their delegates will have up to 10 days in quarantine in hotels before they join the COP 26 talks, which take place between 31 October and 12 November.
Britain announced it would cover quarantine costs for Red List delegates and reduced the time for vaccinations to five days from 10 days.
She has also announced she will hand out Covid-19 vaccines to delegates who have found it difficult to get vaccinated persons.
