  • COP26 briefing sessions with the Ambassador for the Environment

    Australia’s Ambassador for the Environment and Head of COP26 Delegation would like to extend the opportunity for all stakeholders to attend his next briefing session live from Glasgow. Held under Chatham House Rules, this is one of a series of sessions which have been designed to constructively build awareness and understanding of Australia’s negotiating position and brief on what is happening on-the-ground at COP26. To allow for an open discussion, recordings of the sessions will not be made available after the event. Please note that any media enquiries ‘on the record’ must be directed to DFAT’s media team.
