DAERA Minister Edwin Poots MLA is leading the way on COP26, pledging that NI will play its part on the global stage to tackle climate change.

The Minister outlined his pledge as he launched a digital climate action campaign led by MyNI. The announcement comes as, for the first time, the UK will host and preside over the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow from 1–12 November 2021. There are high ambitions for the conference as it marks six years since world leaders committed to the historic Agreement at COP21.

Minister Poots said: “The aim of COP26 is to accelerate global action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and I want Northern Ireland to be a leader when it comes to tackling climate change. I believe we can make huge strides towards this goal via our contribution to COP26 and supporting the UK COP26 Presidency objectives. My primary focus as DAERA Minister is to find ways we can all work together to achieve positive outcomes for nature and business whilst addressing the challenges of climate change and the impacts on our natural environment.

“The UK Presidency for COP26 is a great vote of confidence in the UK’s global reputation on environmental protection issues. The New Decade New Approach deal commits the Executive to tackle climate change head on. Northern Ireland needs to play its part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions on the pathway to the UK Net Zero target.

“There is tremendous amount of good work that is already underway or planned here at home – in DAERA alone we are leading on the development of the Executive wide Green Growth Strategy and Delivery Framework, the development of a NI Climate Change Act, the Forests for the future initiative, a clean air strategy, the development of a Peatlands Strategy for NI,  the NICS Single Use Plastic plan and the roll out of an NI Environment Strategy amongst other activities.”
