Debate: What developing countries need from COP26
Communities in the global South are feeling the greatest impacts of the climate crisis. Ahead of the crucial COP26 climate talks, SciDev.Net will bring together a panel of climate specialists to make sense of the upcoming United Nations negotiations and find out what matters to climate- vulnerable communities in the global South.

Join us as we discuss how climate change is affecting everything from agriculture, to public health and fragile peace agreements. We’ll ask which agenda items communities around the world will be watching as their country delegates meet in the UK in November, and find out how COVID-19 travel restrictions will affect community leaders’ abilities to join the conversation.

The panel:
Samir Tantawi, project manager, Egypt’s Fourth National Communication to the UNFCC; former IPCC report contributor
Ritu Bharadwaj, climate governance and finance senior researcher at the International Institute for Environment and Development
Martin Muchangi, water, sanitation and hygiene specialist at Amref Health Africa; member of The Global Climate and Health Alliance
Ineza Grace, co-director of the Loss and Damage Youth Coalition; founder of The Green Fighter Rwanda
Alexandre Antonelli, director of science at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; systematics and biodiversity professor at the University of Gothenburg
Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, former UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous peoples; executive director at Tebtebba Foundation
