The first day of COP26 in Glasgow brought a late shower of agricultural and forestry pledges, and the second day promises further declarations on a variety of topics, including a global methane agreement.

National leaders: On the second day of the world leaders’ summit, the remaining half of the heads of state will give their speeches and promises of global warming. Japanese Kishida will be the last of the G7 leaders to stand in front of the plenary, arriving in Glasgow shortly after sealing his election victory over the weekend.

In the afternoon, Panama’s President Laurentino Cortizo will sign a ‘carbon negative declaration’ that “unites Panama, Bhutan and Suriname as the world’s only carbon negative countries”.

Boris and Biden and B3W The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson will take part in a panel discussion hosted by President Biden on the US administration’s Build Back Better World, known as the B3W Green Infrastructure Initiative in Developing Countries, launched at the G7.

Methane: U.S. President Joe Biden appeared empty-handed on the first day of the COP, but from one day to the next, the U.S. administration penetrated new methane regulations, launching a global push to limit the release of the potent greenhouse gas. Reducing methane emissions undoubtedly provides the best opportunity to limit global warming in the short term, in particular by preventing leaks from gas burners and distribution.

Trees: More than 100 global leaders and 30 financial institutions are expected to provide details on how they will enforce their commitment to halt deforestation by 2030 and eliminate it from portfolios by 2025.

The release from one day to the next of the statement sets the framework for a stream of corporate and country briefings today to advance the promise.

Water The so-called water and climate coalition leaders will announce that they are “committing to an integrated global water and climate agenda” at an event hosted by the World Meteorological Organization with COP26 President Alok Sharma.
