Less than 100 days until the world climate summit COP26, the IAEA completes its preparations for the event. During this conference, which will take place in Glasgow, UK from October 31 to November 12, the IAEA will demonstrate how nuclear technologies can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and also address the effects of climate change.

For example, nuclear power helps fight climate change by providing 10% of the world’s electricity, which is almost a third of the world’s low-carbon electricity. Nuclear techniques also help manage the effects of climate change, and analytical tools that use isotopic techniques improve our understanding of this phenomenon and drive policy change.

The COP26, which represents the 26th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), is preceded by the pre-COP, a more informal meeting at ministerial level to discuss and exchange views and offer policy guidance for the further negotiations. In 2015, 196 UNFCCC parties passed at the 21st. To meet these goals, countries must reach their highest greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible and become carbon neutral by achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions by the middle of the century.
