As this report starkly shows, there is still a long way to go to a clean energy future. All financiers - public & private - must urgently switch their funding from coal to renewables to accelerate full decarbonization & access to renewable energy for all. unep.org/news-and-stories/pr…

Three-quarters of the infrastructure we need by 2050 has yet to be built. Our choices today will play a defining role in the battle against the climate crisis and the achievement of the #GlobalGoals. bit.ly/2ZZjVIb

The pandemic has amplified the world’s most enduring injustice: the power imbalance between men and women. Bridging the gender divide - including through investments in the care economy - is not only a matter of justice for women & girls, it’s a game-changer for all of us.

Africa is the continent that has contributed the least to the climate crisis - yet is already experiencing some of its most devastating consequences. Supporting those suffering from the impacts of climate change is a moral, social & economic imperative. bit.ly/3nacNjQ

A society which has no room for diversity has no room for humanity. We must speak out wherever we witness hate and #StandUp4HumanRights and the dignity of all.

Vaccine inequality is allowing #COVID19 variants to develop & run wild, condemning the world to more deaths & prolonging an economic slowdown. Without a coordinated, equitable approach, a reduction of cases in any one country will not be sustained over time.

Diversity is not a threat, but a source of strength. It is an anchor of peace & stability in parts of the world that have seen too little of either. And a rallying point for every person to contribute to a better future — for themselves & their societies.

Even before the pandemic, the 22 richest men in the world had more wealth than all the women in Africa. Economic investments must target women entrepreneurs & focus on social protections, education & decent work.

For the first time in decades, extreme poverty is on the rise. And solidarity is missing in action just when we need it most. To #EndPoverty, we need to listen far more to the people experiencing it - addressing indignities & dismantling barriers to inclusion.

1 in 10 people worldwide do not get enough to eat. In a world with ample resources, this should shame us all. Change in the way we produce and consume is not only possible, it is urgent. bit.ly/HungerMap2021

The way we produce, consume & waste food is taking a heavy toll on our planet. The power to change is in our hands. This is the moment to improve our relationship with food & make healthier choices — for ourselves, and our planet. #WorldFoodDay

I condemn in the strongest terms the despicable attack on the Imam Baragah mosque in Kandahar City, Afghanistan. The perpetrators of this latest crime against civilians exercising their right to freely practice their religion must be brought to justice.

Despite ensuring the world can be fed, many rural women suffer from discrimination, systemic racism & structural poverty. We must invest in rural women so they can access the healthcare, social protection & information services they need.

At a bare minimum, $100 billion dollars a year is needed for climate mitigation & adaptation for the developing world. Development banks have an essential role to play in funding a green recovery and credible energy transition plans.

Current decarbonization commitments from shipping & aviation are not aligned with the 1.5°C global warming goal of the #ParisAgreement. In fact, they are more consistent with warming way above 3°C. Both industries must adopt ambitious & credible targets as an urgent priority.

The internationally agreed threshold of 1.5°C global warming is perilously close. We must accelerate the decarbonization of the entire transport sector in order to get to net-zero emissions by 2050. We must act together, smartly, and quickly. news.un.org/en/story/2021/10…

Holocaust denial, distortion and minimization are growing. We cannot let our guard down. We must honour the memory of those who perished, and ensure they are never forgotten. We must reflect, learn, and #ProtectTheFacts. againstholocaustdistortion.o…

I’m shocked and saddened by the tragic news coming from Norway. My thoughts are with the victims’ loved ones and all the people of Norway at this very difficult moment.
