(Comments)

IPRA is an active partner with various agencies of the United Nations. In this context IPRA is asking its members worldwide to spread awareness of the UN Climate Ambition Summit 12 December 2020 and to amplify the summit’s key messages. The Summit is a key step in the lead up to COP26 to be held in Glasgow in 2021.

 

What is the event?

The UN, the UK, and France will co-host a virtual leader-level Climate Ambition Summit on 12 December alongside partners Italy and Chile to accelerate climate action. The summit will demonstrate growing international commitment to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.  Among other things the summit will highlight action by those countries with plans to limit warming to 1.5ºC. In addition, the summit will provide a platform for leaders to come forward with announcements of more ambitious plans for net zero contributions.  During the event, civil society, business, academia, indigenous peoples, and youth will have their voices heard.

 

What are the key messages?

  • Holding the COP26 Presidency in 2021, the UK is calling on all countries to bring ambitious commitments to the table for what will be a key moment in the run up to COP26.
  • COP26 will be a pivotal moment for the world to come together and agree ambitious steps to prevent the catastrophic warming of the planet.
  • Leaders need to set their economies on track to net zero emissions and a resilient future.
