Climate Summit 2014

Adopting resolutions is good, Setting ambitious goals is better, Taking action is best. After two decades of Climate Summits, starting from Berlin in 1995 and including Kyoto 1997, Marrakech 2001, Montreal, 2005, Copenhagen 2009 and Doha 2012, the 2014 New York Summit was inaugurated on September 23rd under the motto “Catalyzing Action”.

Eager to avoid the many mistakes and the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen summit, more specific action were agreed including actions intended to the avert the worst effects of climate change, commitment of private sector funds to move to greener investment outcomes, and action statements for eight specific areas were adopted (Agriculture, Cities, Energy, Financing, Forests, Industry, Resilience and Transportation).
