UN Secretary-General to convene summit on climate change - disaster risk reduction on the agenda

 

 

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is convening a Summit on Climate Change – on 22 September 2009 – to focus Heads of State and Government on the need for urgent action, and to mobilize the highest level political will needed to reach a fair, effective, and scientifically ambitious global climate deal at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December.

The Summit aims to advance the negotiations, but is not a negotiating session itself. It provides a forum where leaders can discuss fundamental issues, find common ground and provide guidance to their negotiators. The main outcome of the Summit will be captured in a Chair’s Summary.

 

Disaster risk reduction will be part of these deliberations, in particular during the UN Leadership Forum luncheon, which will be attended by Heads of States, CEOs and civil society organizations.
