WASHINGTON (June 14, 2021) — This week international climate delegates are wrapping up their third and final week of UNFCCC negotiations. On Thursday, June 17 at 9:30 am ET / 15:30 CET, join WRI and its Partners from the consortium Allied for Climate Transformation by 2025 (ACT2025) for a press call to hear what progress was made across on key negotiating topics and what is needed between now and the UN Climate Summit in Glasgow to reach an ambitious and just COP26 outcome, with the solidarity the world needs to fulfill the promise of the Paris Agreement. 

Experts will also share their reflections on outcomes from the G7 Summit, particularly on vaccine financing and the mobilization of hundreds of billions of dollars in climate finance – and ensuring the most vulnerable countries have access to these resources, in order to renew trust and drive ambitious climate action around the globe in a fair manner. 

Speakers include:

  • Yamide Dagnet, Director of Climate Negotiations, World Resources Institute
  • Mohamed Adow, Director, PowerShift Africa
  • Maria Laura Rojas Vallejo, Executive Director, Transforma
  • Saleemul Huq, Director, International Centre for Climate Change and Development
  • Mark Bynoe, Assistant Executive Director, Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (Respondent)
  • Chuks Okereke, Director, Center for Climate Change and Development at AEFUNAI (Respondent)
  • Tony La Viña, Executive Director, Manila Observatory (Respondent)

Following short opening remarks, we will provide ample time for questions from the media.
