It’s Time to Take Stock of Nature – demands from non-state actors on nature ahead of the UNSG Ambition Summit

 Registration is closed for this event

In 2023, climate breakdown events like wildfires, floods, droughts, and extreme temperatures have already left their mark across continents. Immediate action is more crucial than ever, yet commitments to meet global climate and biodiversity targets seem to be slipping away from reality. However, the possibility of achieving a nature-positive, net-zero world by 2030 still exists, demanding urgent, tangible, and sustained efforts.

During New York Climate Week, Nature4Climate is convening a coalition of non-state actors to mobilize action and bridge the gap between ambition and implementation on nature-based solutions (NbS). From September 18-20, leaders from various sectors will assemble at The Nature Positive Hub, a three-day event at Convene 101, expecting an attendance of around 1,600 individuals. With over 45 sessions lined up, the hub will spearhead discussions on carbon markets, indigenous rights, and leadership in a nature-positive future, along with the pivotal role of technology in supporting climate solutions on the ground.

To kick off the hub, on September 18th, N4C will launch the ‘It’s Time to Take Stock of Nature’ campaign, rallying non-state actors through an open letter and fresh data highlighting the policy and implementation gap on NbS. This Opening Event will unite prominent voices from non-state actors, sharing critical demands and unveiling new data in preparation for the COP 28 and UNSG Ambition Summit.
