Realizing the challenging transition to a low carbon planet depends on developing and developed nations’ actions. The policies and regulations taken forward by developing nations have the potential of not only addressing climate change but also laying the foundation for a sustainable, equitable, and prosperous future.
The goal of “first movers and doers” in the UN’s Climate Ambition Summit is accelerate the decarbonization of the global economy, armed with not just pledges, but credible actions, policies and plans to deliver climate justice in line with the Secretary General’s Acceleration Agenda.
