Main content

Due to the high infection rate in Bergen, we will not gather physically.

A number of UiB researchers participated in COP26 and presented at several side events. In this CET Lunch, two participants from UiB share their experiences of what it was like to be part of the largest climate conference in the world. Camilla Borrevik participated as a delegate from UiB and has previously participated in the negotiations as an advisor to a Pacific country delegation and as a researcher. Anand Bhopal participated as an observer from the UiB delegation, following the first ever COP26 Health Programme.

What was their role and what did they do? How did researchers and academia’s presence contribute to the conference? And what did they as individuals and UiB as an academic institution gain by being a part of COP26?
