The WWF environmental lobby urged the European Union to strengthen its 2030 emissions-reduction target after countries worldwide agreed to bolster their climate plans at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

Negotiators from almost 200 nations on Saturday clinched a deal that requests countries to strengthen their pollution-cut pledges by next year. It also seeks to keep alive the 2015 Paris Agreement’s most ambitious goal -- to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
