The One Planet Summit: Public & private finance in support of climate action [fr]
On December 12, 2017, two years to the day since the historic Paris Agreement, the One Planet Summit aims to find new, concrete responses to the question: “are we capable of uniting towards a concrete response to the climate challenge?”
The Earth is a unique and fragile ecosystem on which each and every one of us lives and acts. The preservation of this ecosystem is a priority. We have no Plan B because there is no Planet B.
In order to live up to our common destiny, we must unite to take concrete action together.
How can stakeholders in the public and private finance sector innovate to support and accelerate our common efforts to fight climate change? That is the central questionto be discussed at the One Planet Summit on December 12, 2017.
The One Planet Summit aims to:
- Act concretely and collectively: solutions exist and must be executed globally and locally as swiftly as possible.
- Innovate: by being creative and resourceful in adapting our systems to inevitable changes and stepping up our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Support one another: we are all affected by climate change, but some are more vulnerable than others. For the common good, we need to work together and increase our support to the countries and peoples who need it most.
This Summit will be a forum that proposes new and tangible actions and ideas (ClimActs) involving all public and private stakeholders.
The One Planet Summit is organized jointly by France, the United Nations and the World Bank, in partnership with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the We Mean Business group, the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, the European Commission, the C40 Cities Network, and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
