COP26 wrap-up: what has Eurasia achieved? An interview with Olha Boiko
Show Notes

We're reviewing COP26 and asking whether the 1.5 degree target has been kept alive, which would avert catastrophic climate change. What are the conclusions of this COP for Eurasia? And were activists and NGOs from the region capable of being represented at this historic climate summit? 

Our guest to discuss this is Olha Boiko, coordinator of CAN EECCA (Climate Action Network focusing on Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia) and based in the NGO Ecoaction. Olha is also well versed on the situation in Russia. 

The Eurasian Climate Brief is a new podcast dedicated to climate news in the region stretching from Eastern Europe and Russia down to Caucasia and Central Asia.
