UN climate action summit 2019



The 23 September 2019 from 08:00 until 12:00


New York City, NY, USA



UN Secretary-General António Guterres is calling on all leaders to come to New York on 23 September with concrete, realistic plans to enhance their nationally determined contributions by 2020, in line with reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to net zero emissions by 2050.

Track #4 focuses on the Energy Transition and track #7 on Infrastructure, Cities and Local Action.

Track 7 focuses on scaling up ambitious commitments on low-emission and resilient infrastructure, in particularly land-based transportation, buildings, water and waste systems and the requisite private and multilateral development bank financing. It will also mobilize cities and sub-national governments to allocate necessary resources to develop and finance Paris-aligned plans and budgets. The track is led by Turkey and Kenya and supported by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat).
