The UN Secretary-General has called on world leaders attending the upcoming UN Climate Action Summit to show up armed not with speeches but with plans to achieve carbon neutrality, reduce emissions and improve adaptation.
The UN chief made that call during a visit to The Bahamas, which continues to reel from the onslaught of Hurricane Dorian. Speaking to journalists in the capital, Nassau, the UN chief expressed international solidarity with the Government and people of the island nation.
Dorian hit the Bahamas in the Atlantic Ocean earlier this month. The storm destroyed more than 10,000 houses and left at least 52 people dead.
