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.
