UN Secretary-General meets with civil society to commemorate Paris Agreement entry into force

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.
