As the world looks ahead to COP26 in Glasgow, against the backdrop of a global pandemic, what will it take for the summit to be declared a success?

Jeremy Cliffe and Megan Gibson are joined by New Statesman Environment and Sustainability Editor Philippa Nuttall, all in London, to discuss the summit, the need for a just transition that includes the global south and whether big players like Russia and China will engage with the process.

Then in You Ask Us, they answer a listener\s question on how COP26 will take into account of the other UN summit on Biodiversity.
