Updates from the ground at COP26

Over the two weeks of COP26, a small team from CAT will be in Glasgow sharing expertise in providing skills and knowledge to help address the climate and biodiversity emergency. They’ll be coming together with others to work on solutions and learning from people across the globe, particularly those from the Global South who are on the frontlines of the climate emergency.
