At the UN Climate Conference in Glasgow (COP26), several multilateral initiatives were launched. They can potentially close the 2030 ambition gap and implement climate action more quickly.

Besides the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA) and the Global Methane Pledge (GMP), we took a closer look at the Glasgow Leaders’ Declaration on Forests and Land-Use (GDFLU). The declaration aims to protect forests and stop land degradation by 2030.
