The Paris Agreement to address climate change, adopted by world leaders last December at the Climate Conference in Paris (COP21), officially entered into force on 4 November. To commemorate this historic day, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon invited representatives of civil society organizations to a 45-minute meeting with him at UN Headquarters in New York. This meeting provided civil society groups with the opportunity to share with the Secretary-General how their organizations will contribute to the objectives of the Paris Agreement, as well as their visions and concerns. The Executive Office of the Secretary-General, UN-NGLS New York, and UN DPI co-organized the meeting, with support from DGACM, UN Interpretation Service, UN Broadcast and Conference Support Section, UN Web TV, and UN Meetings Management. The Secretary-General made a statement to the press before the start of the meeting, surrounded by civil society representatives. See the video here.
