Climate Ambition Summit

On 12 December the UK will co-host a Climate Ambition Summit with the UN and France, and in partnership with Chile and Italy, to mark the fifth anniversary of the landmark Paris Agreement.

Global leaders will be invited to the virtual event which will focus on actions to reduce emissions and build resilience to climate impacts.
