COMMITMENT 1 Responding to extreme events in island states Climate change multiplies the power of cyclones and hurricanes. Island States and territories are the most vulnerable and the most exposed to these extreme events. Each tragedy leaves behind devastated territories and populations in danger. Adapting means protecting them.

COMMITMENT 3 Mobilizing researchers and young people to work for the climate Advancing knowledge of climate change is essential to inform decision-makers and bring about progress in the implementation of effective and sustainable solutions. The involvement of young people is an asset for international cooperation. They are the new face of knowledge of tomorrow’s world.

COMMITMENT 4 Public procurement and access to green financing for local governments The battle against climate change is also waged at local level. The actions undertaken by regions and cities have a major impact for achieving the common objectives set down in the Paris Climate Agreement. Only mobilization by all parties can make a difference!

COMMITMENT 5 Zero emissions target The greenhouse gases emitted by human activities to produce, consume and travel have a long-term impact on the environment and are the main culprits of global warming. The Paris Agreement enshrined the “zero- emission” objective, which the One Planet Summit initiatives hope to achieve through concrete solutions.

COMMITMENT 6 Sectoral shifts towards a decarbonized economy In 2014, coal produced over 40% of the world’s electricity. This situation has alarming consequences for atmospheric pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The One Planet Summit participants made a commitment to support the transition towards renewable energy sources.
