More than 100 heads of state and government will be attending the UN General Assembly. Climate change will be a major focus attention. Climate Week will take place during the week of 24-30 September, feature close to 150 events on climate change.

The Global Climate Action Summit will bring leaders and people together from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” It will be a moment to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of states, regions, cities, companies, investors and citizens with respect to climate action.

We are significantly under-estimating the benefits of cleaner, climate-smart growth. Bold climate action could deliver at least US$26 trillion in economic benefits through to 2030. There are real benefits to be seen in terms of new jobs, economic savings, market opportunities, and improved well-being for people worldwide.
