Read Climate Action Network Canada's backgrounder on the major events happening this week, with quotes on our expectations, and our scorecard evaluating how Canada measures up to the key elements of the UN Acceleration Agenda.
The world is confronted with a slew of accelerating and converging crises, from climate change and biodiversity loss to energy insecurity, unaffordable living and rising inequality.
