Developing a ‘One Planet Roadmap for climate action and green finance’ will be the priority for world leaders gathering in New York next week.
#OnePlanetSummit – which first took place in Paris last December – moves onto the Big Apple for an event that will be hosted by President of France, Emmanuel Macron; Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres; President of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim; and UN Special Envoy for Climate Action, Michael R. Bloomberg.
These decision-makers will meet with other leaders, from big business and national governments, to progress a One Planet Roadmap where private, public, local and national interests will be aligned to advance a collaborative approach to investing in effective climate action that can protect those most vulnerable to its effects.
“Climate action requires a collective response. Discipline and ambition are essential. We are going through challenging times, but solutions are everywhere, all over the world. We must act together to foster innovation, boost transformative projects, gather public and private investments, and deliver on our promises for the next generations. The time has come. It is our priority, both economically and politically. We are ready now for this shared action,” said Emmanuel Macron.
