Headline messages from ‘Building a Resilient Future’ prepared for the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit

These actions and initiatives need to be urgently scaled to accelerate transformation towards a resilient future that serves the most vulnerable communities and those most impacted by climate change and related systemic stresses. If we fail on these commitments, we fail on the SDGs and the Paris Agreement.
