What’s happening each day at COP26?

While the exhibitions and ‘fringe’ events provide hands-on and physical explanation, the real work of COP26 takes place with a raft of meetings between the countries’ representatives.

Alok Sharma MP (pictured) is serving as President for COP26 and Minister of State at the Cabinet Office since 2021. He resigned his previous position as Secretary of State for Business in order to lead COP26
