Remarks at the Climate Finance Ministerial Meeting

This event comes at an opportune time.
 
The Paris Agreement calls for governments to keep global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees. 
 
We are way off target.
 
Climate change is running faster than we are.
 
The commitments made so far by Parties to the Paris Agreement represent just one-third of what is needed.
 
We risk irreversible catastrophe if we don’t act more quickly and with more ambition.
 
The world has already warmed by 1 degree.

Remarks at the Development Committee

Madame Chairman, may I first of all express once again to you, to your government and to the people, my deep solidarity in relation to the trying times that you have been facing.
 
I just came from Palu and I was deeply impressed by two things. One, the resilience, the sense of solidarity and the courage of the people. And second, the very effective response that the government has put together and your very ambitious programme of reconstruction that, I hope, will have the full support of the international community as a whole.

Remarks to ASEAN Leaders' Gathering

President Widodo, thank you very much for your invitation and warm hospitality.

I want to begin by expressing once again my deepest condolences and solidarity with all those affected by the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Sulawesi and my admiration for the effective, very effective response led by the Indonesian Government.

Mr. President, we are with you and with the people of Indonesia. 

I will be travelling to Palu tomorrow.  I want to reiterate the full commitment of the United Nations to support government-led rescue and relief efforts.
