OUR GLOBAL CHALLENGE



Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment.
Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly.

The greatest threat humanity has ever faced

SOLUTIONS


"The UN has prioritized the following action portfolios, which are recognized as having high potential to curb greenhouse gas emissions and increased global action on adaptation and resilience."

 

Finance

Mobilizing public and private sources of finance to drive decarbonization of all priority sectors and advance resilience.

Energy Transition

Accelerating the shift away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy, as well as making significant gains in energy efficiency.

Industry Transition

Transforming industries such as Oil and Gas, Steel, Cement, Chemicals and Information Technology.

Nature-Based Solutions

Reducing emissions, increasing sink capacity and enhancing resilience within and across forestry, agriculture, oceans and food systems, including through biodiversity conservation, leveraging supply chains and technology.

Cities and Local Action

Advancing mitigation and resilience at urban and local levels, with a focus on new commitments on low-emission buildings, mass transport and urban infrastructure; and resilience for the urban poor.

Resilience and Adaptation

Advancing global efforts to address and manage the impacts and risks of climate change, particularly in those communities and nations most vulnerable.

Mitigation Strategy

Generate momentum for ambitious Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and long-term strategies to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Youth Engagement and Public Mobilization

To mobilize people worldwide to take action on climate change and ensure that young people are integrated and represented across all aspects of the Summit, including the six transformational areas.

Social and Political Drivers

Advance commitments in areas that affect people’s well-being, such as reducing air pollution, generating decent jobs, and strengthening climate adaptation strategies and protect workers and vulnerable groups.
