Two leading spokeswomen from the High Ambition Coalition of countries, which is advocating for ambitious outcomes from the UNFCCC talks, have today set out their expectations of what COP26 should deliver for the world.
Andrea Meza Murillo, Minister of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica, and Tina Stege, Climate Envoy of the Republic of Marshall Islands, today held a joint conference where they underscored that:
The highest-emitting countries must strongly enhance their national climate plans, the Nationally Determined Contributions in advance of COP26;
Finance for climate action must be approached in a holistic, whole-of-economy fashion, in every country;
Respect and preservation of human rights through climate-related actions should be a paramount principle.
