Following two weeks of headline-making pledges and tough negotiations at COP26, countries agreed to the Glasgow Climate Pact. But what does the Pact mean for the fight against the climate crisis? How should it be implemented? And what needs to happen before COP27 in Cairo?

Join World Resources Institute and the International Monetary Fund for an in-depth panel discussion on how the Glasgow Climate Pact can help close the emissions gap — getting us closer to where we need to be — and how it can help ramp up climate finance for developing countries.

This discussive event, featuring climate and finance experts, will explore key questions around the implications of COP26 outcomes and assess prospects for global coordination going forward.
