This page lists a selection of the events and places where IIED and partners could be found in the Green Zone, Blue Zone and outside of COP26 during the 2021 climate change negotiations in Glasgow, including recordings of events where available

Throughout the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), IIED researchers and partners were present at dozens of events in person and online. 

Among IIED's key areas of focus were getting climate finance to the local level and supporting negotiators from the least developed countries (LDCs).

We also had an extensive programme of events on locally-led climate action, nature-based solutions, climate finance and more at the Resilience Hub and Development and Climate Days.
