G20 leaders summit to focus on climate, pandemic recovery: Italy’s Draghi

    28 Oct 2021

    The Rome summit is seen as particularly important because it comes just before the United Nations COP26 climate change conference.

    The G20 Heads of State and Government Summit will be held in Rome on October 30th and 31st 2021, with the participation of the G20 Heads of State and Government, of their counterparts from invited countries, and of the representatives of some of the leading international and regional organizations, Arab News reports.

     The summit of the G20 leaders scheduled in Rome at the end of October will focus on the fight against climate change, coronavirus, and the measures required for a global recovery after the pandemic, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said on Wednesday.

    “Without the involvement of the world’s largest economies, we will not be able to comply with the Paris Agreement and limit global warming,” Draghi told Senate in remarks ahead of this week’s European Council meeting.

    The Rome summit is seen as particularly important because it comes just before the United Nations COP26 climate change conference to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, where the position of G20 nations will be critical.
