#COP26 must be the moment the world makes the #ParisAgreement a reality and keeps 1.5 degrees in reach

Quoted @PEspinosaC

The NDC Synthesis Report, which covers around 30% of global emissions, is a wake-up call for the 🌏.

It shows that we are far away from a pathway that will meet our #ParisAgreement goals.

In 2021, we have a rare opportunity to turn this trend around. #COP26 must be a success.

The window for action to safeguard our planet is closing fast

The @UNFCCC Synthesis Report should serve as an urgent call to action and I am asking all countries, particularly major emitters, to make ambitious 2030 emission reduction commitments in NDCs well ahead of #COP26
