Overview of GIZ Transport Events at COP26

The 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be held between October 31 and November 12, 2021. The UK Presidency has set November 10 as the dedicated sector thematic day. COP26 events will be held in three formats: presence, hybrid and virtual. This change brings about an opening of conversations and reflections at side events to a broader audience.

The GIZ Transport Team is co-organizing and participating in many side events, collaborating with counterparts and relevant partners from the climate action and the transport sector.
