The nations have stricken the Glasgow Climate Pact, aimed at fighting climate change, after more than two weeks of hectic negotiations. The COP26 had to go into overtime for the deal to be agreed. It would be the first ever deal to cut use of coal, which is most responsible for emitting greenhouse gases. It also committed to providing more money for the developing countries to help stave off the climate impacts. The much-awaited Rule Book for starting implementation of the Paris Agreement has also been finalized, among other developments in the conference where around 200 countries attended.


There were disappointments about the outcome that fell far short of expectations of many countries, different civil society organizations and climate activists. They expressed resentment over China and India’s role in weakening the language on coal from “Phase out” to “Phase down”. Some observers and delegates also thought that the financing pledges were also not enough to fight the danger of warming while some countries, especially the most vulnerable poorer ones, were unhappy over the not-so-mentionable advances in Loss and Damage negotiations.


While there is no lack of sincerity among the nations to collectively fight against the looming dangers, it is very unlikely that the hectic efforts would yield a success if the very good causes of some poorer or developing countries are overlooked.
