United Nations – The urgency of finding reliable, serious and new actions for the planet is the current focus of the preparations for the Climate Action Summit, convened by the UN during the High Level week of the General Assembly.
The event, scheduled for September 20, aims to show the participating leaders the need to keep alive and effective the goal of reducing the 1.5 degrees of the Paris Agreement.
The objective of offering climate justice to those at the forefront of the climate crisis has highlighted many events this year in the High Level segment, when half the time set for the Sustainable Development Goals remains.
With this goal, the organization also organized the Summit of the SDGs, the Dialogue on Financing for Development, with three important health meetings.
The movement for Climate Action, in particular, will seek the leadership and urgency of decision-makers, who in the opinion of the Secretary General, António Guterres, have “a special responsibility to achieve the commitments of the design of our future common policy for our common good.”
The Summit will champion ambitious solutions and actions that drive 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 moment for indifference or doubt, it is a moment to unite in the search for the true and practical solutions,” said the UN chief in recent statements to the press.
The meeting, he added, will take place at a time when humanity is facing many challenges: from the worsening climate emergency to worsening conflicts, the global cost of living, growing inequality and extreme which is technological destruction.
At the same time, geopolitical divisions undermine the capacity to respond to the emergence of a multipolar world, which can be a balancing factor but can also lead to increased tensions, divisions and worse, he warned.
