World leaders have left the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, leaving behind their teams of experts and negotiators to reach a new accord to help curb global warming.

The leaders are leaving Glasgow - they only attend two days of the two-week United Nations Climate Change summit, leaving the technical work to negotiators.


 

Highlights

  • The summit’s host, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, says he’s cautiously optimistic of success.
  • More than 100 countries have pledged to cut methane emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.
  • A separate pact sees 110 countries commit to ending deforestation, underpinned by almost $20 billion in private and public funding.
