The COP26 meeting, hosted by the UK in November, will turn the spotlight on the global challenge of tackling climate change.

At our webinar, our expert panel discussed the public policy responses to this challenge by the EU, the UK and Germany. Among the questions discussed were:  Will a green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic be possible? What is the impact of Brexit for the UK’s and European climate policy?
