Cop26's third day was dominated by the announcement of what many consider a positive announcement about forests and land use, the so-called Glasgow Agreement. Madeleine Finlay, host of Cop26, speaks to Jonathan Watts, Guardians global editor on environment about the pledges made by world leaders. She also talks to Guyana's indigenous leaders and Indonesian rights activists about their views on the new agreement.

Nina Lakhani, senior Guardian reporter in the US, reports from a memorial to honor those who died saving their communities and forests, which we all depend so heavily on.
