EU ministers agree on joint position for COP26, focusing on climate finance for mitigation and adaptation strategies

Ministers in the Council of the EU adopted conclusions establishing the EU’s joint position for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, including a call for increased international climate finance mobilization that better balances mitigation and adaptation action.
