World leaders are gathered for a meeting of the UN General Assembly this week, and at the top of the list of global concerns is the fight against climate change. Esther Pan Sloane, head of partnerships, policy, and communications, United Nations Capital Development Fund, joined Cheddar to discuss some of the ambitious plans from countries to hit their Paris Climate Accord targets "We see that there is political commitment.
