The scale of the climate and nature crisis is such that they need to properly command full global attention

It’s a wise decision to postpone COP26, It is clearly a priority right now to focus on the global challenge of safeguarding public health to save lives and fight Covid19.

The scale of the climate and nature crisis is such that they need to properly command full global attention. The Woodland Trust itself will continue to keep progressing important innovative, nature based solutions and work with a wide range of partners to ensure that there is strong UK leadership both domestically and internationally.

The extended preparation time should be used to truly set the country on a path to net zero that will benefit both nature and people throughout the period in run up to the new COP26 date and beyond, which requires a concerted effort from all to tackle the long term threats posed by the nature and climate crises.
