Convening government, business and municipal leaders, civil society and academia to maintain momentum of Paris Agreement
The Climate Action 2016 summit, will take place eight months after the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals by all the governments of the world, and five months after the UNFCCC conference of parties in Paris set a new international framework for climate action.
The summit aims to deepen and expand the links between government, business, finance, philanthropy, civil society and academic leaders launched at the UN Secretary-General's Climate Summit 2014 in New York, and seek to make this broad-scale organisation of climate action both more effective and sustainable.
This high-level gathering aims to complement and promote ongoing climate action on cities, land use, resilience, energy, transport, tools for decision makers, and finance.
Organising partners include the World Bank; the Global Environment Facility (GEF); the Compact of Mayors; the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD); We Mean Business; and the University of Maryland.
Registration opens early 2016 and can be accessed here.
