Leaders Summit showcases clean energy commitments to tackle climate crisis

Following the United States return to the Paris Climate Agreement, the Leaders Summit on Climate reconvened 17 members are responsible for approximately 80% of global emissions and global GDP.

The US presented its goal of reducing emissions by 50-52% by 2030 compared to 2005 levels, which is also reflected in the nationally determined contribution the US submitted to the UNFCCC on 21 April 2021.  The US also announced a range of commitments to create jobs, mobilize finance, spur transformational innovations, conserve nature, build resilience, strengthen adaptation, and drive economic growth for communities, which will have huge ramifications for Latin America and the Caribbean.
