The pressure is rising for the world leaders. They have set themselves the goal of reaching an agreement on climate change at the end of 2015 in Paris, during the Conference of the Parties at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Several tricky questions, inevitably politically-oriented, just nevertheless be resolved to reach this agreement, mainly on the need to raise the ambition level of international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
Faced with these political deadlocks, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr BAN Ki-moon, has convened the world leaders to a Climate Summit in New York on 23 September 2014. This Summit is meant to be an important milestone in mobilising the political will so that the agreement can be concluded in 2015. It is designed to offer political leaders, corporate heads and the civil society a forum for discussion outside the formal negotiating framework of the Convention, to formulate ideas for ambitious actions and thus breathe new optimism into the UNFCCC process.
The International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF) has responded enthusiastically to the invitation by undertaking to contribute actively to this Summit. The OIF has requested its subsidiary body, the Institut de la Francophonie pour le développement durable (IFDD – Institute of the French-speaking world for Sustainable Development), to prepare a document to highlight a few actions underlining the contribution of the Francophonie and its member countries in world efforts to combat climate change.
