Cop26 pledges- where does Pakistan stand?

As Cop26 concludes with a ‘weak pulse,’ here’s a look at what Pakistan has pledged at the Conference.

Pakistan is part of the deforestation pledge.

The Glasgow Leaders’ Declaration on Forests and Land Use has been signed by more than 141 countries to conserve and restore forests by 2030. The deal, the first major agreement to come out of the summit, includes a $19.2bn pledge.

Coal phase out pledge – Not signed

More than 40 countries agreed to phase out their use of coal power while 23 countries signed the COP26 Coal to Clean Power Transition Agreement, committing for the first time to stop constructing new coal plants.

However, the USA and China – the largest coal producers and consumers – were absent from the agreement.

The Global Methane Pledge – signed.

This pledge was proposed by the US and the EU in September and aims to reduce global methane emissions by at least 30 percent from 2020 levels by 2030. China, Russia, and India – the biggest contributors to methane – did not sign.

The country’s net zero target date is 2050.
