WSP USA’s Tom Lewis explains why he sees accelerated action coming out of the United Nation’s COP26 climate change conference, which concluded on Nov. 12.
The much-anticipated UN 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) global climate held Oct. 31-Nov. 12 in Glasgow, Scotland, came to an end with mixed reviews about the progress made.
I agree that we need work done more quickly on climate and with a greater commitment to inclusion of the most vulnerable and least heard; yet I was also highly encouraged by what I witnessed first-hand inside the event’s Blue Zone. Overall, it was a net positive for me.
