From the G20 to COP
Over the weekend the Prime Minister attended the G20 Summit in Rome, meeting with world leaders ahead of the COP26 Summit in Glasgow, as Britain and other nations continue to work together to combat climate change and build back greener from the pandemic.
- Ahead of the COP26 summit - the G20 meeting in Rome gives us the opportunity to highlight the aims of this historic summit, as well as how we build back better from the pandemic alongside our international allies.
- Britain has agreed to provide at least 20 million more Oxford/AstraZeneca doses to the world’s poor in 2022 to ensure we all beat the virus – we also agreed that Iran can never develop or acquire a nuclear weapon, and an agreement on girls' education – providing £50 million to help those in Afghanistan most at risk under the Taliban regime.
- We must now build on this work and grasp the historic opportunity to deliver on commitments made to reduce emissions and protect our planet as we build back greener from the pandemic.
