In this seminar Michael Jacobs will explain the main issues to be discussed at the Summit, the key players, and likely outcomes. He will place COP26 in the wider context of multilateral cooperation and the domestic politics of acting on climate change.
Michael was climate adviser to Gordon Brown when he was Prime Minister and was heavily involved in the (unsuccessful) Copenhagen COP15 in 2009. He subsequently advised the French and UK governments and others in the run-up to COP21 in 2015, which resulted in the historic Paris Climate Agreement. He was a founder of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate. He is now Professor of Political Economy and a fellow of the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Sheffield.
