“Assessing President Biden's Climate Summit: Is the dial moving closer to 1.5°C?”
On Thursday, April 29, 2021

Achieving net-zero emissions globally by 2050 requires ambitious action and worldwide cooperation. On the occasion of Earth Day 2021, the Biden Administration invited over 40 Heads of State or Government to participate in the Leaders Summit on Climate to pave the way for UNFCCC COP26 in Glasgow this November. Can world leaders work together in the fight against the defining crisis of our lifetime and advance the Paris Agreement goals?
