Countryside COP recommendations

The first ever Countryside COP was convened to showcase and inspire net zero activity in rural communities in response to climate change

Scheduled just a few weeks ahead of COP26 in October 2021, this series of online events highlighted the need for a just transition to net zero and a resilient society which is both economically and socially fair, leaving no one behind. 

Organisations from international farmers’ bodies to universities came together to discuss a wide range of topics - from renewables to a just transition to greenhouse gas accounting.

The Rural Services Network was delighted to take part in the event and hosted a session with over 100 delegates debating issues surrounding rural transport and rural energy efficiency.

A report of all of the recommendations from each session throughout the week has now been published, and includes those of the RSN session.
