Good morning from Glasgow: Daniele Pernigotti at the COP26 – The Good COP and the Bad COP for the Glasgow Climate Pact
“The good COP and the bad COP” does not represent the classic role-playing between two policemen called upon to manage a tough interrogation. It is instead the effective description that Saleemul Huq makes of the outcome of the COP26 in Glasgow. Salemuul is not exactly a novice in climate change and of the negotiation within […]
The last mile of the marathon always has a different taste. It may seem longer than the previous ones, or the last of the energy left may cause an acceleration, unexpected till moments before. Today, after a good night’s sleep, we will make eye contact with the negotiators who instead gave up rest for a […]
Good morning from Glasgow: Daniele Pernigotti at the COP26 – The COP failed! Or not, there is a deal! The immaturity of (some) Italian press
On Monday and Tuesday, general mourning for a completely unsuccessful COP. On Wednesday, spectacular headlines on the first draft of a deal to give up coal and fossil fuels. Two slips in a short time, probably marked by the need for a striking article. It occurs to me an episode that happened in Bali in […]
The main goal of COP26 is to operationalise Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. It is a complicated knot that shall still be untangled since the COP in Marrakech in 2016. Intended for market mechanisms, it is the only Article that still needs to be completed. The problematic aspects that need to be solved concern […]
Every time, at the COP, someone manifests great satisfaction because rich countries, the main cause of the problem, have eventually decided to economically support developing countries – which are paying the consequences – with consistent sums. BUT – there is always a but when common decisions on Climate Change are expected – they have been […]
Good morning from Glasgow: Daniele Pernigotti at the COP26 – Success, failure, or the usual half-full glass?
It begins today, the second week of the COP26. In this high-level segment, Sherpas take a breath and leave their place at the negotiating tables to their Ministries and close collaborators. The Conference of Glasgow is at a turning point, and it becomes natural to try and take stock of the work done so far, […]
Good morning from Glasgow: Daniele Pernigotti at the COP26 – The first step towards a global Carbon Footprint label
It is physically impossible to recount all the events that take place at the COP26. In each of the dozens of national pavilions are simultaneously held plenty of conferences, not to mention the meetings organized by associations officially recognized as UNFCCC observers and those hosted by the Secretariat itself. Today, however, I would like to […]
The attention of the public opinion around the COP26 is legitimately focused on the national reduction targets to reach the goal of keeping the global temperature rise to well below 2°C by the end of the century, as established by the Paris Agreement. However, serious action on climate change requires that the global commitment is […]
Good morning from Glasgow: Daniele Pernigotti at the COP26 – Participation or anti-COVID19 measures…That is the question.
That the COP26 was destined to be an exceptional event, it had long been clear. From a negotiating point of view, this meeting was expected to be crucial already from the Paris Agreement because the purpose of the COP26 was to collect the adjusted Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), to close the gap between the global […]
