We are delighted to present a post-COP26 roundtable with the lecturers of the "On the Road to COP26 / CMA3 Preparatory Lecture Series" These interactive sessions will be held as zoom meetings rather than as webinars and provide a brief overview of developments during the Glasgow Climate Summit, and they will address the question of "where next" in terms of preparation for COP27 and the Global Stocktake. We are looking forward to a lively Q&A session!
