As the COP26 talks are nearing completion in Glasgow, it is worthwhile to look at some of the relevant quotes from the week.

“As a continent that only contributes 3% of greenhouse gas emissions, Africa cannot be left on its own to manage their increasingly harmful effects.” – DR Congo President Felix Tshisekedi

“Even if we were to turn off the tap on greenhouse gas emissions today, the impacts of climate change would be with us for many decades to come” – Inger Andersen, executive director of UN Environment Programme

“We must demand that our leaders treat the climate crisis like our crisis, we must demand that our leaders stop holding meaningless summits and start taking meaningful action” – Vanessa Nakate, Ugandan climate justice activist

“In many ways, islands are the canary in the coalmine in this situation. They are sending a message now that if we don’t act then it’s going to be too late” – Barack Obama, former US president
