The 27th Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will bring together delegates from nearly 200 countries to negotiate global goals for tackling climate change. Nearly a year ago, COP26 culminated with the formulation of the Glasgow Climate Pact that adhered to taking climate action initiatives and transforming the cities into resilient and sustainable cities.
