Over the next two weeks, we'll be bringing you a couple of special 'COP26' editions of our newsletter, The Informer.
Today is day three of COP26 and we've heard the opening speeches from Sir David Attenborough, Prince Charles and the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, who is hosting the conference. We've also heard from world leaders who have outlined their climate plans. The main COP26 headlines so far are:
- The first major deal has been agreed amongst world leaders to end and restore deforestation by 2030
- Prime minister of India, Narendra Modi commits to a net-zero target by 2070 - 20 years later than the global target.
- The Queen recorded a video message, she said "this conference will be one of those rare occasions where everyone will have the chance to rise above the politics of the moment, and achieve true statesmanship.”
