Australia’s ‘advanced’ plan to host COP prompts bidders to pull out

No Comments

Australia will have to contend with Turkey for the right to host the United Nations climate talks in 2026, after Switzerland pulled out of the race.

Turkey threw its hat in the ring at the COP27 talks in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, this week. Istanbul will play host should it win, the Turkish government said while also announcing it had doubled its carbon emissions’ reduction target to 41 per cent by 2030. The country contributed about 1 per cent of global carbon dioxide emissions, or 530 million tonnes, in 2020.
