The average production cycle for planted forests is 50-100 years. This means that trees being planted today must be able to cope with both the current and future climate conditions.

UNFCCC COP 26 side event ‘Aligning export finance with the Paris Agreement: high time to phase out fossil fuels’
Contrary to Art. 2.1c of the Paris Agreement, many countries heavily support fossil fuel investments abroad contributing to carbon lock- in. Export credit agencies (ECAs) provide billions to fossil fuel projects each year. We can’t solve the climate crisis if ECAs continue to bankroll fossil fuels. During COP26 at 4 November 4.45PM Glasgow time, a panel will highlight the impacts caused by export finance in the global South and will provide concrete recommendations to decarbonize ECAs.

The speakers on the panel are Axel Michaelowa (University of Zurich); Kate DeAngelis (Friends of the Earth US); Bjarne Steffen (ETH Zurich); Laila Darouich (Perspectives Climate Research); Ayumi Fukakusa (Friends of the Earth Japan); Richard Matey (Alliance for Empowering Rural Communities, Ghana) ; Julio Bichehe (Farmers Union Cabo Delgado Mozambique); and Mariane Søndergaard-Jensen (Danish ECA, EKF, Denmark).
After the panel there is time for discussion.

Co-hosts of the event: Both ENDS, University of Zurich, ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology), Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Abibimann Foundation

Cop26 must not overshadow Kunming: we need joint climate and biodiversity goals | Ma Jun

All eyes are on Cop26 in Glasgow since the climate crisis aroused worldwide attention and compelled more than 120 countries to join the unprecedented global Race to Zero carbon-emissions campaign. But the UN biodiversity conference in Kunming, or Cop15, should not be overshadowed, as biodiversity loss is an equally grave threat to humanity.
