COP26 Negotiators Work Toward Climate Deal

GLASGOW—Organizers of climate talks released what they described as a near-final draft of a deal that they hope will survive a day of haggling and emerge as a meaningful commitment by more than 190 governments to step up the fight against climate change.

Even before talks at the United Nations summit, called COP26, started two weeks ago, governments’ climate plans fell short of what scientists say is needed to stave off the worst effects of an increase in global temperatures. Negotiators, in an attempt to keep that goal within reach in the near future, are trying to convince delegates to sign onto a pledge to revisit those commitments next year.
