Climate Action Summit makes urgent environmental call

United Nations, Sep 15 (Prensa Latina) The Climate Action Summit, which was convened by the UN during the General Assembly High-level Week, will urgently seek to carry out credible, serious and innovative actions to address climate change.

The Summit is set for September the 20th. It aims to show participating leaders the need to keep alive and effective the goal of reducing 1.5 degrees set by the Paris Agreement.

The purpose of offering climate justice to those on the front lines of the climate crisis, promotes several events this year during the High Level segment, when only half of the time set for complying with the Sustainable Development Goals remains.

For this reason, the UN also organized the SDG Summit, the Financing for Development Dialogue, along with three key meetings on health.

The Climate Action Summit, in particular, will seek leadership and urgency among decision-makers, who in the opinion of Secretary General António Guterres have “a special responsibility to achieve commitments in the design of our future common policy for our common good”, and will defend the ambitious solutions and actions driving the transition to a low-carbon, equitable and climate-resilient global economy.

According to Guterres, the forum will insist on the urgency of reaching an agreement to achieve a better tomorrow. “My appeal to world leaders is clear: this is not a time for posturing or positioning. This is not a time for indifference or indecision, it is a time to unite in search of real and practical solutions,” said the Secretary General in recent statements to the press.

Guterres said the Summit will take place at a time when humanity faces enormous challenges: from the worsening climate emergency to escalating conflicts, the global cost of living, growing inequalities and dramatic technological disruptions. Geopolitical divisions undermine the ability to respond with the emergence of a multipolar world, which can be a balancing factor, but can also lead to escalating tensions, fragmentation and some other worse things, he stressed.
