Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha announces Thailand's accelerated greenhouse gas mitigation targets, joining other states in keeping the global temperature rise below 1.5 degree Celsius to tackle the climate crisis.
On 1 November 2021, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha attended the World Leaders Summit, which is part of the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Glasgow, United Kingdom.
On this occasion, the Prime Minister emphasized that Thailand has put climate action as top priority, and presented Thailand’s active efforts.
The Prime Minister also announced Thailand’s aim to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, and net zero greenhouse gas emissions by or before 2065 to urgently tackle the issue, as Thailand is one of the top ten countries in the world most affected by climate change.
Additionally, the Prime Minister presented Thailand’s BCG economy model as the pathway towards paradigm shift and environmentally-friendly economic development, which will be the main agenda for APEC next year, during the Thai chairmanship.
During the Summit and the welcoming reception hosted by the UK government in the evening, the Prime Minister met with the Prince of Wales, the UK Prime Minister as well as other world leaders including the United States, India, Republic of Korea, Viet Nam, Germany, Canada, Mozambique, Sweden, and Luxembourg. The Prime Minister also visited the Thai Pavilion at the Scottish Events Centre.
