About the summit

The Global Climate Action Summit was convened by United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, at the Climate Action Summit in New York on 23 September 2019 to rally world leaders to focus on increasing the ambition of climate commitments and to adequately respond to the ecological crisis facing our planet.

Here you can browse the 28 initiatives that were presented at the Summit, which were developed to drive an upsurge in cooperation and bend emissions downward while building the resilience of those already being hit.

This page also brings together the announcements made at the Youth Summit on 21 September, as well as accompanying reports released in the lead-up to and during the Climate Action Summit. As the official repository for these initiatives, the Global Climate Action portal will remain engaged in the follow-up of the commitments, and will work to further scale-up and monitor the initiatives to achieve the promised objectives.

The initiatives are organized under the Summit’s nine Action Areas, which were prioritized by the UN Secretary-General as a means of ensuring that actions announced at the Summit will be as impactful as possible.
