LIVE: XR at G7 part 4 – Climate Change and Pandemics

The G7 Summit will play a crucial role in the raising of ambition of climate action this year. The group’s agreements lay the path for the G20 Summit and global climate negotiations at COP26 in Glasgow in November.

2021 is a critical year for the COP process and there is a growing realisation that the Paris agreement is failing. G7 will need to increase their ambitions for emissions reduction and equitable climate finance, or risk the failure of not only COP26 but the entire Paris agreement.

There will be lots of money on the table for post covid recovery and a need to put some meaningful action behind the rhetoric on green recovery (this is the number 1 agenda item for G7).

G7 is our best chance to influence the outcomes from COP 26. We will take aim at the leaders of the developed world, calling out their empty promises, and exposing their unholy alliances with fossil fuel companies which will ensure the world does not meet the commitments made in the Paris Agreement.

We need to press the G7 nations, observers and guests for immediate change and keep that pressure on all the way to COPLIVE: XR at G726.
