Climate action and sustainable development are in the spotlight at UNGA

A week of high-profile events lies ahead as the 78th high-level session of the UN General Assembly kicks off in New York.

World leaders, policymakers and civil society actors will assess progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and push for greater action to tackle climate change. Secretary-General Prof. Petteri Taalas leads the WMO delegation.

“We have to start bending this emission growth curve as a matter of urgency and we have to get rid of coal, oil and natural gas. And we have to stop deforestation, especially in Amazonian and Central African region,” Prof. Taalas said in a video interview with the Climate Group.

“The prices of solar and green energy, and the prices of batteries are dropping. And its more attractive to invest in solar and wind energy,” said Prof. Taalas. The video, Facing the New Reality, was broadcast at the start of the New York Climate Week – which coincides with the General Assembly.

A high-level meeting on the Goals, known by the shorthand ‘SDG Summit’, is set for 18-19 September. The gathering aims to revitalize action for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which set 2030 as the deadline for realizing the Goals. At the midway point, with the world far off-track from doing so, hopes are high that the Summit’s Political Declaration will rekindle the world’s ambition.

Leaders adopted a decisive, action-oriented political declaration at the Summit, highlighting their collective commitment to build a sustainable, inclusive and prosperous world by 2030.

“The SDGs aren’t just a list of goals. They carry the hopes, dreams, rights and expectations of people everywhere,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres. “Yet today, only 15 per cent of the targets are on track. Many are going in reverse. Instead of leaving no one behind, we risk leaving the SDGs behind.”

Tens of millions have fallen into poverty since 2020. Over 110 million people are forcibly displaced. Inequalities have worsened, strikingly so for women and girls. Many governments are forced to choose between debt payments and investing in healthcare and education. The climate emergency is wreaking havoc on lives and livelihoods. Developing countries and the world’s most vulnerable people continue to bear the brunt of these crises.

A new multi-agency United in Science report said that the planet is far off track from meeting its climate goals. This undermines global efforts to tackle hunger, poverty and ill-health, improve access to clean water and energy and many other aspects of sustainable development.

The report, coordinated by WMO, makes a systematic examination of the impact of climate change and extreme weather on the goals. It illustrates how weather, climate and water-related sciences can advance aims such as food and water security, clean energy, better health, sustainable oceans and resilient cities.

“Science is central to solutions. It is widely understood that weather, climate, and water-related sciences provide the underpinnings for climate action. But it is less recognized how these sciences can supercharge progress on the SDGs across the board,” António Guterres writes in the foreword.

Lauren Stuart, WMO Scientific Officer, presented the findings of the report at the science and academic segment of the SDG Action Weekend on 16 September. WMO also participated in the Climate and SDG Synergies session, highlighting the need for better water information and management to help mitigate climate change.

Mr Guterres has convened the Climate Ambition Summit on September 20 to bring together leaders in the realms of government, business, finance, local authorities, and civil society considered “first movers and doers”.

These leaders are recognized for their credible actions, policies, and plans aimed at upholding the 1.5°C degree goal outlined in the Paris Agreement. Their efforts also focus on delivering climate justice to those individuals and communities on the front lines of the climate crisis.

The global Early Warnings for All initiative will be in the spotlight at the Climate Ambition Summit, which will seek to galvanize financial and political support to achieve the goal to reach every person on Earth with early warning systems by the end of 2027.

The urgency of climate action has been underlined by the spate of extreme weather events, including the deadly flooding in Libya which claimed thousands of lives. Earth just had the hottest three months on record, and there is particular alarm over the high sea surface temperatures and record low Antarctic sea ice extent.

Somali President reshuffles army leadership, promotes new commander

President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has announced a major shake-up in the Somali National Army, appointing new leaders and promoting a senior officer. In a presidential decree issued on Monday, Mohamud named Brigadier General Madey Nurey Sheikh as the Deputy Commander of the army and Brigadier General Dayah Abdi Abdulle as the Commander of the Infantry. Abdulle, who was previously a Colonel, was also elevated to the rank of Brigadier General. The president praised the new appointees for their dedication and service to the nation, and urged them to work hard to restore peace and stability in the country. He also called on all Somalis, civilians and soldiers alike, to support the army and join the fight against the militant group Al-Shabaab, which has been waging a violent insurgency for over a decade. The president said that the government was committed to reforming and strengthening the security sector, and thanked the international partners for their assistance and cooperation.

Somali President Receives New EU Ambassador in Dhusamareeb

The President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Mr. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, received the credentials of the new EU Ambassador, Ms. Karin Johansson, in Dhusamareeb today.

The President, who is in Dhusamareeb to lead the fight against terrorism, welcomed the new Ambassador and expressed his appreciation for the EU’s support to Somalia, especially in the areas of eradicating the Khawarij and improving the security of the country.

The new EU Ambassador, Ms. Karin Johansson, congratulated the Somali government and people on the achievements made in the fight against the Khawarij, a term used to refer to extremist groups such as Al-Shabaab. She also shared with the President the efforts they will make to strengthen the relationship and cooperation between Somalia and the EU.

The two sides discussed various issues of mutual interest, including political, economic and social development, humanitarian assistance, regional stability and peacebuilding.

The President assured the Ambassador that the Federal Government of Somalia will work closely with them and facilitate the implementation of their diplomatic duties. He also invited the Ambassador to visit other parts of Somalia and witness the progress and challenges faced by the Somali people.

The EU is one of Somalia’s key partners and donors, providing humanitarian aid, development assistance, security sector reform and political dialogue. The EU has also been supporting the African Union Mission in Somalia (ATMIS), which is mandated to protect civilians and support the Somali security forces in their fight against terrorism.
