COP26

Is Jersey sending a delegation to the COP26 summit in Glasgow later this year?

Why the contribution is important

The experiences of adaptation in an island context are important to share and it will also be informative for some of Jersey's citizens to learn from others.

    Hi, thank you for your comment.
    The Government of Jersey is in discussion with the organisers of COP26 and is arranging for a delegation to attend the important climate talks later this year. We aim to send key political representatives supported by officers in order to engage fully in the events, negotiations and opportunities for side meetings that the Conference of Parties offers.
    Thanks, GoJResponse

    Jersey should team togther with the other Crown Dependencies and potentially the British Overseas Territories to ensure that our voices are heard at COP26.
    We should make a joint contribution based on the vulnerability of small island states to the threats from cliamte change.
    Glad to hear that Jersey will be sending a delegation (by boat and train?), but as you know, all the negotiation is done beforehand and 'behind the scenes'. We need to ensure that we have made our requirements heard by the UK delegation long before the meeting, by submitting a written document.
