Bi Xinxin Invited to Join the UN Climate Summit

The unprecedented UN Climate Summit opened on 23rd September 2014 in New York, hundreds of heads of states and governments, businesses, finance, and civil society leaders participated in this summit by bringing new commitments and actions to the UN headquarter stage.
World leaders reaffirmed the need to take urgent action to limit global temperature rise to less than two degrees Celsius. Acknowledging that the world was not on a pathway to reach that goal, they also committed to significantly ramp up climate action. Many speakers made it clear that taking action to reduce emissions could be achieved without damaging prospects for economic development and efforts to fight poverty.
US President Barack Obama, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, French President François Hollande, Korean President Park Geun-hye presented the summit and delivered speech on climate actions. Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, as the special envoy of President Xi Jinping, committed to doubling the aiding fund of Chinese government and donating US 6 Million Dollars to UN Secretary General for South South Cooperation on climate change. Zhang stressed China will achieve the goal of carbon intensity reduction by 40-45% until 2020 against 2005 level and peak its carbon emission as soon as possible. China will come up with its own proposal of intended nationally determined contributions by first quarter of next year.
Along with other 37 civil society representatives, Bi Xinxin was selected to present the summit of behalf of China Civil Climate Action Network, the largest NGOs network on climate change in China.
