The Secretary-General is hosting the Climate Summit to engage leaders and advance climate action and ambition. The Summit will serve as a public platform for leaders at the highest level – all UN Member States, as well as finance, business, civil society and local leaders from public and private sectors – to catalyze ambitious action on the ground to reduce emissions and strengthen climate resilience and mobilize political will for an ambitious global legal agreement by 2015 that limits the world to a less than 2-degree Celsius rise in global temperature.
The Climate Summit will be focused on actions and solutions by both national governments and groups of governments working together with a variety of actors from the private sector and civil society to accelerate progress in areas that go far to reduce emissions and strengthen resilience – in areas such as energy; short-lived climate pollutants; cities and transportation; sustainable agriculture and forestry; adaptation and disaster risk reduction; and climate finance and the economic drivers.
