Climate Change Negotiations: The History.

by Sophie Mbugua

The episode marks the beginning of building momentum to the 26th United Nations Climate Change conference also known as COP26 series.

We start by contextualising the current climate change negotiations by looking back to where it originated and how it has evolved over time. To walk us through that journey, I am joined by a James Murombedzi, a climate change policy and governance expert. COP26 is scheduled in the city of Glasgow, Scotland between 31 October and 12 November 2021.

Also, the huge mitigation and RE potential of the continent is not well captured in the African position
