NASSAU, BAHAMAS – World leaders are descending on Glasgow, Scotland for the United Nations Climate Change Conference or COP26 this week. Prime Minister Philip Davis says the Bahamas will be working to raise awareness on how small island states such as the Bahamas are feeling the severe effects of climate change.



He spoke with reporters before leaving for Glasgow this afternoon.

The climate change conference comes at a critical time when the world is experiencing a rise in global temperatures. Rising temperatures affect the types of hurricanes and storms we experience in the region, and play a role in rising sea levels. PM Davis says The Bahamas may not be a huge contributor to global warming, but we are feeling its effects. 

COP stands for conference of the parties, and it will bring almost every country together with a common purpose – to address the growing threat of climate change. 

At COP21 in Paris, world leaders signed on to the Paris agreement – aiming to keep global warming well below two degrees. 

According to COP26 organizers, the window to limit global warming to one-point-five degrees is closing. 

Now countries are working together to protect the planet.
