After an opening day marked by "doomsday" rhetoric, it's time for action at COP26.

More than 100 countries, including EU nations, have just announced a new plan to curb methane emissions by 30%.

Several other major deals are being signed on Tuesday, notably an agreement by more than 100 world leaders to end deforestation by 2030.

If you weren't able to follow along yesterday, here are the 5 key takeouts from day 1.

Here is what you need to know as crucial climate talks enter their second day:

  • The world leaders' summit concludes today. After outlining their national commitments and setting out broad outlines of agreements, they will let diplomats and other government officials hammer out the details.
  • The British presidency is facing criticism about accessibility and inclusiveness at the conference. Civil society groups have complained of "unprecedented restrictions" to negotiations, while an Israeli minister using a wheelchair was unable to access the summit yesterday.
  • A delegation of 12 mayors from some of the world's major cities have called for action to tackle climate change as they travelled to Glasgow for the COP26 summit.
