COP26 is an event that many experts believe to be the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control. We have less than a decade to prevent irreversible damage from our rapidly changing climate. And as we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, we must also act urgently to build the net-zero carbon economy of not only the future, but the present.
The PCC is proving that regional governments taking leadership and working together on climate action is a powerful approach for regions all over the world to make the urgent changes necessary for a healthy, prosperous, and greener world. And while ongoing international agreements and commitments are critical, regional partnerships like the PCC are just as critical to build a healthy, carbon free, and resilient future for all.
As world leaders prepare to gather in Glasgow to reach an international agreement on how to tackle climate change – government leaders from the Pacific Coast share the importance of working across the region to meet the challenges of the climate crisis with bold leadership and unprecedented collaboration.
