Faith, Science and Youth: A call for an ambitious climate summit
Ahead of the climate ambition summit, leading global voices from faith, science, and youth will come together to share the moral imperative to rebuild our economies for true resilience.
The COVID-19 crisis and climate crisis should be addressed concurrently to deliver a just and sustainable recovery of economies and society that truly puts people and the planet before profit. The richest countries first should deliver increasingly ambitious targets and actions based on science, equity, human rights and ensure policy coherence with the Paris Agreement, biodiversity objectives and Agenda 2030. Efforts should be focused on supporting resilience: adaptation, health and nutrition. An integrated approach should be used to support developing countries’ climate adaptation and SDG plans in recovery, and to strengthen synergies between health, food-security, nature protection and restoration, and climate adaptation.
