2018 must mark "dramatic shift” in decarbonization of global economy: Christiana Figueres

NEW YORK: Christiana Figueres, Former Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC and Global Ambassador for the Under2 Coalition, says the 10th Anniversary of Climate Week NYC and the Global Climate Action Summit in California will work together to help 2018 mark a necessary "dramatic shift in the decarbonization of the global economy", during an exclusive interview with The Climate Group.

During the video interview, Christiana Figueres explains the crucial complementary roles the two summits will play in accelerating global climate action. She outlines how the Global Climate Summit will offer a "huge display of what is possible under climate mitigation and adaptation measures and actions", and that Climate Week NYC – taking place just days later – has the opportunity to "harvest everything that has been put on the table in the California Summit, and frankly take it to the next level."

Climate Week NYC 2018 takes place from September 24-30, 2018. For the latest info, visit ClimateWeekNYC.organd follow #CWNYC on social media. Add to your calendar NOW >>
