UN Summit on Climate Change


The objective of the Summit on Climate Change, which I am convening on 22 September, is to mobilize the political will and vision needed to reach an ambitious agreed outcome based on science at the UN climate talks in Copenhagen.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

On 22 September 2009 – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is convening a Summit on Climate Change at UN Headquarters in New York. The Summit aims to mobilize the political will and vision needed to reach an ambitious agreed climate deal at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December. Guided by the Secretary-General’s background paper, the Summit provides a forum where Heads of State or Government can examine fundamental issues and find common ground in roundtable discussions. Key political issues that will receive attention are adaptation assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable; mid-term mitigation targets for develo! ped countries; slowing emissions’ growth in developing countries; financial and technological support; and institutional arrangements and governance structures.
At the Summit a luncheon by the UN Leadership Forum on Climate Change will also be organized. The latter aims to stimulate interaction between Heads of State/Government, business and civil society leaders and to discuss the role of business and public-private cooperation in the climate change debate, in particular focussing on food security; energy solutions; water security; sustainable enterprises and decent work; financing; and disaster preparedness and risk reduction.
