Placencia Ambition Forum Focuses on Climate Change

The Government of Belize, as the chair of the Alliance of Small Island States, hosted the Placencia Ambition Forum which put together key actors in the climate change discussions around the central idea of increasing ambition, and a focus on safeguarding the Paris Agreement.  The forum was planned to take place in Placencia but due to the COVID 19, it was held virtually. Now, the COVID-19 pandemic amplifies the importance of key island priorities for the global climate change agenda.  The forum serves as an opportunity to highlight the synergies between the disruption of COVID-19 and climate change and how responses to COVID-19 can strengthen the case for more sustainable climate action. PM Barrow spoke at the opening of the forum.
