Will it make a dent on deadlocked negotiations? The United Nations is set to host what it calls the biggest gathering of world leaders on climate change at the UN Climate Summit 2014, which opensSeptember 23 at the UN headquarters in New York. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said he expects leaders from government, business and civil society to announce commitments in key areas like energy, cities, industry, transportation and forestry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet the benchmark to keep global temperature rise to two degrees Celsius. Naderev “Yeb” Saño, Philippine climate change commissioner, said the country’s experience of literally being in the eye of extreme weather events is a powerful message President Benigno Aquino III will deliver at the summit.
