UN Climate Action Summit 2019

New York City, US
Monday 23rd September 2019

 

To support efforts to implement the Paris Agreement and to increase ambition and climate action, UN Secretary-General António Guterres will bring world leaders, from government, finance, business, and civil society to the Climate Summit on 23 September 2019. He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilize political will for an ambitious and meaningful agreement in Paris in December 2015.

The Summit will come exactly one year before countries will have to enhance their national climate pledges under the Paris Agreement.

The Secretary-General said, “Only a significantly higher level of ambition will do. To that end, the Summit will focus on areas that go to the heart of the problem – the sectors that create the most emissions and the areas where building resilience will make the biggest difference".

"We will bring together players from the real economy and real politics, including representatives of trillions of dollars of assets, both public and private."
