38 civil society representatives selected to participate in UN Climate Summit

- Advertisment -
At the request of the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Change Support Team, the United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) issued an open call in seven languages for nominations of civil society speakers and attendees for the 2014 UN Climate Summit. 544 nominees were submitted from 115 countries. Between 16-25 August, UN-NGLS facilitated a civil society Selection and Drafting Committee to review all nominees. The Committee short-listed 76 candidates for consideration by the Secretary-General’s Climate Change Support Team (CCST). From this list of 76 candidates, the CCST has now selected 4 speakers and 34 attendees to receive invitations to the Climate Summit in the following categories:
  1. One speaker in the opening ceremony
  2. Three panellists for the Thematic Debate “Voices from the Front Lines of Climate Change,” organized by UNICEF, UN Women and UNFPA
  3. Thirty-four additional attendees.

in the Summit, along with a complete description of the  

 

nomination process, is now available here:  

 

 

 

 

More than 100 Heads of State and Government will attend the 23 September Climate Summit, along with representatives of civil society, business and local leaders. Through this Summit, the UN Secretary-General aims to catalyze new, substantial, scalable, and replicable commitments by all stakeholders to help the world shift toward a low-carbon economy. The Climate Summit is not part of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiating process, but is complementary to it. The Secretary-General intends for the Summit to mobilize political will toward an ambitious legal agreement by 2015, and enable sustained progress on reducing emissions and strengthening resilience and adaptation strategies.
