One month after the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit, the Green Climate Fund’s (GCF) High-Level Pledging Conference is a critical step for climate action and global commitment to the Paris Agreement.
On 24th october 2019, the One Planet Event with GCF sought to explore synergies between OPS and GCF, as well as their unique sets of partners, to scale up innovative climate finance to help communities and countries at the frontline of climate change.
Responding to the invitation of President Kenyatta of Kenya, President Macron of France, UN Secretary-General Guterres and President Kim of the World Bank Group, the coalitions of the “One Planet Summit” will meet in Nairobi, Kenya on March 14th. Building on previous One Planet events (Paris, December 2017 and New York, September 2018), this third edition of the One Planet Summit will gather committed African leaders, entrepreneurs, donors, international organizations and other stakeholders coming from all parts of societies and institutions. The objective is to accelerate and step-up climate action to deliver high-impact outcomes for African populations and to protect biodiversity in Africa.
