Multilateralism still ‘only way’ to address common challenges: Shahid

For people, for planet

To confront the other worldwide threat of climate change, the Assembly President will convene, in hybrid format on 26 October, an event entitled “Delivering Climate Action – for People, for Planet and for Prosperity”.

“This event will be focused on the gap between current and required technical and financial capacities to achieve the 1.5 degrees target…[and] to show how that gap can be met”.

Mr. Shahid said it would be an opportunity for Member States, civil society and others, to come together to “take stock of the ambition raising initiatives along the path to COP26”, taking place at the start of November in Glasgow, Scotland.

Holhuashi Dialogues

The Assembly President announced that he would continue holding informal consultations with Permanent Representatives, as “Holhuashi Dialogues”, explaining that in his native Maldives, a Holhuashi is a meeting place to discuss ideas, and issues important to the community.

He said five such sessions would take place, “to bring the spirit of Holhuashi” to the Assembly, and “create a space for dialogue, exchange of views, and discussion on solutions”.

The first will focus on people and climate change: “This links with a series of events we are planning in the month of October around the theme of climate change, in the lead up to COP26”, Mr. Shahid told correspondents.
