Addressing climate change is one of humanity's greatest and most pressing challenges–and one that requires an urgent response. While science, technology, economics, and finance can guide collective action, our window of opportunity is closing.
The Global Leadership for Climate Action (GLCA) is a task force of world leaders committed to addressing climate change through international negotiations. A joint initiative of the UN Foundation and the Club of Madrid, the GLCA consists of former heads of state and government as well as leaders from business, government and civil society from more than 20 countries.
