About Climate Week NYC 2013
Against the backdrop of President Obama's commitment to take action on climate change, the imminent publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's fifth assessment of the science of climate change, and the first anniversary of Hurricane Sandy's devastating impact on the East Coast of the US, the focus of Climate Week NYC 2013 is:
OUR LOW CARBON FUTURE - LEADERSHIP. OPPORTUNITY. SECURITY.
World leaders from business and government will be joined by America's top faith, military, agriculture and health representatives at the Opening Ceremony, which will include a special high-level panel on climate resilient communities, hosted by founding sponsor Swiss Re.
