One Planet Summit

More climate funding emerges from One Planet Summit in Paris

The French president Emmanuel Macron, along with the president of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim, and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, called together international leaders to address climate change.

Heads of government and corporations were asked to commit to action on climate adaptation, mitigation and mobilisation.

12 commitments have been confirmed from the summit.

The Pacific will benefit from a number of these, including $US650 million from the Gates Foundation to help small-holder farmers adapt to climate change.
