Urgent climate action

In the face of the scientific evidence put forward by the recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on August 9th, 2021, and in accordance with the Paris Agreement, it is imperative to increase the political relevance of the climate agenda.

General messages of the event

Climate change is an existential threat that demands increased ambition, urgent action and fraternal collaboration among all international actors.
