The SMP is keen to help coordinate and support Malawi’s involvement at COP26. 

We want to amplify Malawi’s voice and visibility at COP26 and, in so doing, raise awareness of Scotland’s links with Malawi, support our Members’ work, and support climate justice in Malawi. 

In November 2020 Glasgow will host COP (Conference of Parties)26, the 26th annual global climate change summit: one of the largest international gatherings hosted in Scotland to date.  There will be hundreds of different fringe events and activities beyond the formal state-led discussions, with an estimated 30,000 coming to Glasgow.  It will be a busy and noisy time, and we are keen to ensure Malawi’s voice is heard.

Using our Malawi at COP26 logo and #ClimateCrisisMalawi, we hope to help amplify those representing Malawi at COP26 and create a strong dialogue around the climate issues facing our two nations.

We are delighted to share this excellent short video from one of our members, the Climate Challenge Programme Malawi.





The SMP invited our members who were keen to be involved with COP26 to join us for a meeting on the 7th February in Edinburgh.  This was be a space to discuss the support the SMP can offer, share information about who is doing what, and agree a strategy for the coming months.  As always, we want to be led by what would be of greatest use to our members.

At the meeting Members fed edits into the proposed SMP COP26 engagement plans and unanimously agreed a final strategy, giving a strong mandate for the Partnership to advance these plans

SMP's Malawi at COP26 logo

We hope that having a Malawi at COP26 logo will help bring together those representing Malawi's climate voice under one banner, amplify their voices, and show the support that exists across Scotland for our Malawian friends.

Using the hashtag #ClimateCrisisMalawi we hope to build momentum around the issues of climate change in Malawi on social media and get people talking about sustainable change.

In the coming weeks and months, we will use this webpage to share a range of Malawian voices, and also information about what our members are doing around COP26.

Members of the SMP are welcome to use the COP26 logo, if they commit to adhering to the six agreed principles, and can download the logos below:

Logo 1 // Logo 2 // Logo 3 // Logo 4 // Logo 5 // Logo 6
