It’s Friday! Will those at #cop26 have to change their plans for onward travel? As we wait for answers, here’s a thread on key issues at the conference, what they mean and why they’re important.

First up: #finance. @SandeepChamling shares his insights.…
Second: #transparency at COP26

@mel_yseali wrote a great piece for our Science Talk section in @straits_times on why this is important. This was written before COP but still shaping up to be a rather tetchy issue……
More explainers to come on! But as we work on those, here’s an overview of other outstanding issues that remain on the table at #cop26:…
As we wait for the informal stocktaking plenary for an indication of how far we are for an outcome at #cop26, have a quick listen on the scale of the climate crisis for small island states @AOSISChair; and the need for climate justice:…
Issues relevant for Asean at #cop26, with policy guru @mel_yseali highlighting challenges for South-east Asia in terms of loss and damage and climate ambition:…
Specifically of interest for Singapore, which plans to launch a carbon trading platform by year end, is that of carbon markets and discussions surrounding Article 6. Have a listen to the second part of our interview with @mel_yseali :…
In what I hope is my last Carbon Copy from #cop26, an explainer on the key issues surrounding the international trade in credits. What is Article 6, how can credits move across borders, and what are the bones of contention that remain?…

I wondered why Singapore was not among signatories when I wrote the first story on Nov 2 at #cop26. Posed this question to the authorities, and glad to see Singapore doing so now. More in this story:…
