Maintain momentum for climate action

As North Sea Neighbours, the Netherlands and the UK have been ambitious climate partners for years. In these unprecedented times, collaboration is more important than ever. Not only do we need to build back better from COVID-19, we also need to maintain momentum for climate action. The Netherlands is proud to contribute to the discussions during LCAW Digital, and as an ambitious partner we look forward to the continued action and debate in the run-up to the Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS online, hosted by the Netherlands on 25 January 2021), COP26, and beyond.
