Member governments to highlight plans to address climate change during ICAC plenary meeting

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, aka COP26, was one of the most anticipated summits to address our rapidly changing planet and its increasingly unpredictable weather patterns.

Executive Summary

The Government Session at the ICAC's 80th Plenary Meeting:

  • Will provide an overview of what ICAC Member governments are doing to address climate change
  • Requires delegates to deliver a 5-minute overview of their countries' climate change mitigation plans
  • For example, delegates are urged to discuss their governments' policies since the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) was held

How much of an impact it will have largely depends on the policies that governments around the world implement based on its findings. On 29 November, at the 80th ICAC Plenary Meeting, each Member government will let us know where they stand based on the outcomes of initiatives like COP26.

During the session, 'What Climate Smart, Sustainability Policies/Initiatives Have You Put in Place for Cotton and Textiles, for Example to Respond to COP26?', a delegate from each ICAC Member will deliver a 5-minute presentation on their government's actions since COP26 was held. This Government Plenary Session is scheduled for 10:45 am - 12:00 pm (GMT-5) on 29 November.

There's no other place to get this kind of insight into the plans of the world's top cotton producing and consuming countries! The virtual 80th ICAC Plenary Meeting, with the theme 'Driving Sustainability through Innovation and Leadership', will be held 29 Nov - 1 Dec and attendance is free to all.
