THE PARIS PACT FOR PEOPLE AND THE PLANET

Our aim is clear : a world where poverty has been eradicated and the planet preserved. Where vulnerable countries are better equipped to tackle crises stemming from climate change and conflict.

Our strategy is clear : we must mobilize all sources of financing, including official development assistance, national resources and private investment.

To achieve our goals, we must stay united.

 

 

4P: 4 main overarching principles

1 No country should have to choose between fighting poverty and saving the planet.

2Every country adopts its own transition strategy, taking into account its needs and its constraints when it comes to achieving the Paris Agreement targets. We shall be strengthening our partnerships to support these national trajectories.


4P: 4 main overarching principles

3 We need a financial boost and more resources to assist vulnerable economies in helping their populations out of poverty, while protecting the planet.

4 The international financial system must be more efficient, and the role of private capital is key. Our ability to overcome global challenges will fundamentally depend on increasing private capital flows to transform emerging and developing economies, reach a net zero world which respects the environment, and reduce inequalities more effectively.


About

The Summit for a New Global Financing Pact was held on 22 and 23 June in Paris. It brought together hundreds of participants, some 40 Heads of State and Government, as well as leaders of international and regional organizations, presidents of development banks, company CEO’s and civil society representatives – a variety of stakeholders committed to build a fairer and more sustainable world.

The summit led to an assessment of additional efforts necessary to face a dual challenge -- the eradication of poverty and the preservation of the planet. These were included in a declaration of ambition and call to action - the Paris Pact for People and the Planet. The Summit also led to the formation and launching of coalitions and initiatives, all of which are committed to produce tangible measures that contribute to achieving the Pact’s objectives.

A committee has been set up to follow these projects. It will adhere to the 4P agenda and monitor challenges linked to financing sustainable development that are high on the priority list of global leaders. It will report on advances made and ensure that the high level of ambition expressed during the Summit is maintained, in order to accomplish the measures agreed upon in Paris.

FOLLOW-UP MECHANISM

A follow-up committee has been set up to keep the 4P principles alive in the coming months and stay on course for ambitious progress. Bringing together the main partners, it is in charge of progress reporting on the new financing Pact. It also continues to call upon leaders for ambitious measures that are in line with the urgency and the needs in question.





President Macron’s trip to Dubai for COP28 offers an opportunity to highlight the first tangible successes of the “4P”, or Paris Pact for Peoples and the Planet, following on from the Paris Peace Forum; to officially launch the Taskforce on international taxation; and to encourage all of the Taskforce partners to continue to roll out this ambitious roadmap for more financing and more balanced global governance – so that no country needs to choose between the fight against poverty and protecting the planet.




Initiatives launched

Coalitions and initiatives enabling initial progress to be made on the Paris Pact were launched at the Summit on 22 and 23 June. Countries and organizations have taken on a pioneering role in establishing new measures that can respond to some of the challenges faced by developing countries. These coalitions and initiatives may be deepened and expanded in the coming months.

    António GUTERRES

    António Guterres, le neuvième Secrétaire général de l'Organisation des Nations Unies, a pris ses fonctions le 1er janvier 2017.

    Ayant été témoin de la souffrance des êtres humains les plus vulnérables de la planète, des camps de réfugiés aux zones de guerre, le Secrétaire général est résolu à mettre la dignité humaine au cœur de son action. Dans une période de défis mondiaux sans précédent, il s'est appuyé sur son engagement envers la Charte des Nations Unies pour mobiliser le monde et lancer des actions pour répondre à la pandémie de COVID-19, faire face à l'urgence climatique, faire progresser l'égalité des sexes et réaliser des réformes ambitieuses au XXIe siècle pour renforcer les efforts cruciaux entrepris par l'Organisation pour assurer la paix, le développement durable, les droits de l'homme et l'aide humanitaire.

    Avant sa nomination, M. Guterres a été Haut-Commissaire des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés de juin 2005 à décembre 2015. Son mandat à la tête de l'un des principaux organismes humanitaires du monde a été marqué par les vagues de déplacement sans précédent de ces dernières décennies. Les conflits en Syrie et en Iraq et les crises qui secouent le Soudan du Sud, la République centrafricaine et le Yémen ont obligé le HCR à multiplier ses activités alors que le nombre de déplacés ayant fui les conflits ou les persécutions passait de 38 millions en 2005 à plus de 60 millions en 2015.

    Avant de travailler au HCR, M. Guterres a passé plus d'une vingtaine d'années au service de l'État et dans la fonction publique. Il a été Premier Ministre du Portugal de 1995 à 2002, période au cours de laquelle il a joué un rôle de premier plan dans l'action internationale engagée pour mettre fin à la crise du Timor Leste.

    Au début de l'année 2000, en sa qualité de Président du Conseil européen, il a dirigé la procédure d'adoption de la Stratégie de Lisbonne pour la croissance et l'emploi et coprésidé le premier sommet Union européenne-Afrique. De 1991 à 2002, il a été membre du Conseil d'État portugais.

    En 1976, M. Guterres a été élu au Parlement portugais, où il a siégé pendant 17 ans. Au cours de cette période, il a présidé la Commission parlementaire de l'économie, des finances et de la planification, puis la Commission parlementaire de l'administration territoriale, des municipalités et de l'environnement. Il a également été chef du groupe parlementaire de son parti.

    De 1981 à 1983, M. Guterres a été membre de l'Assemblée parlementaire du Conseil de l'Europe, où il a présidé la Commission des migrations, des réfugiés et de la démographie.

    Pendant de nombreuses années, M. Guterres a été un membre actif de l'Internationale socialiste, une alliance mondiale de partis politiques sociodémocrates. Il en a été le vice-président de 1992 à 1999, période à laquelle il a coprésidé le Comité Afrique et, plus tard, le Comité Développement. De 1999 à mi-2005, il a présidé l'Internationale socialiste. Il a en outre fondé le Conseil portugais pour les réfugiés et l'Association de défense des consommateurs portugais DECO et présidé, au début des années 70, le Centro de Acção Social Universitário, une association mettant en place des projets de développement social dans les quartiers pauvres de Lisbonne.

    M. Guterres est membre du Club de Madrid, une alliance démocratique réunissant d'anciens chefs d'État et de gouvernement du monde entier.

    M. Guterres est né à Lisbonne en 1949. Il est titulaire d'un diplôme d'ingénieur de l'Instituto Superior Técnico. Il parle couramment le portugais, l'anglais, le français et l'espagnol. Il est marié à Catarina de Almeida Vaz Pinto et a deux enfants, un beau-fils et trois petits-enfants.

    L'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies adopte par acclamation le 13 octobre 2016 une résolution nommant António Guterres du Portugal au poste de Secrétaire général, pour un mandant de cinq ans, à compter du 1er janvier 2017.

    Vanessa NAKATE

    Climate activist Vanessa Nakate was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2022. Vanessa began advocating for climate justice in 2019 with a protest on the streets of Kampala, Uganda, inspired by Greta Thunberg. She continued to protest every week, becoming a well-known face in a global movement of young people “striking” for the climate. In 2020, Vanessa rose to further prominence when she was cropped out of a news photo in which she appeared alongside Thunberg and other white climate activists. Her response that the news outlet “didn’t just erase a photo, you erased a continent” made international headlines. Vanessa has since used her platform to advocate for climate justice for every community, especially those most affected by the impacts of climate change. She founded Rise Up Movement to elevate the voices of African climate activists, as well as a project to install solar panels in rural Ugandan schools. Vanessa is also the author of A Bigger Picture, a manifesto on inclusive climate action. In her first trip with UNICEF, Vanessa travelled to Kenya to see firsthand the impacts of water and food insecurity caused by the worst drought in the Horn of Africa in 40 years. There, she met with communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis, including mothers and babies receiving life-saving treatment for severe acute malnutrition and families benefiting from solar-powered water supply systems. Vanessa has addressed world leaders at multiple climate summits and appeared on the cover of TIME magazine in 2021.

Dr. Shah reshaped the $20 billion agency’s operations in more than 70 countries around the world by elevating the role of innovation, creating high-impact public-private partnerships, and focusing U.S. investments to deliver stronger results. Shah secured bipartisan support that included the passage of two significant laws – the Global Food Security Act and the Electrify Africa Act. He led the U.S. response to the Haiti earthquake and the West African Ebola pandemic, served on the National Security Council, and elevated the role of development as part of our nation’s foreign policy. Prior to his appointment at USAID, Shah served as Chief Scientist and Undersecretary for Research, Education, and Economics at the United States Department of Agriculture where he created the National Institute for Food and Agriculture.

    In October 2023, Dr. Shah will publish Big Bets: How Large-Scale Change Really Happens with Simon & Schuster’s Simon Element imprint.

    At the United Nations, Malloch-Brown spearheaded the global promotion of the UN Millennium Development Goals as head of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) from 1999 to 2005, under the then UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan.

In 1995, Soros backed Malloch-Brown and others’ idea of launching the International Crisis Group, an NGO focused on preventing and averting violent conflict, in response to the horrors seen in Rwanda, Somalia, and the former Yugoslavia.

    More recently, he chaired Best for Britain, a group that makes the case for Britain’s engagement with the European Union, and has among others led the boards of the Royal Africa Society, the UN Foundation, and the Business Commission for Sustainable Development.

    FAQ

    What was the reason for a Summit for a New Global Financing Pact?

    It is high time to reform the international financial system, 80 years after the Bretton Woods conference. On 22 and 23 June 2023, the French President invited Heads of State and Government, leaders of international financial institutions and representatives of civil society and the private sector in order to lay the foundations of a new system to address our common challenges: fighting inequalities and climate change and protecting biodiversity.

    Where was the Summit held?

    The Summit was held at the Palais Brongniart, UNESCO and the OECD, in Paris.

    France has always acted as an impartial international broker and has helped resolve some of the most complex issues of our time, from addressing the shortfall in AIDS research funding to increasing the access of middle-income African countries to financing. Today, seven years after the historic signing of the Paris Agreement, leaders all around the world once again came together to reflect on a fairer and more sustainable future for our planet.

    Who took part in the Summit?

    It was an inclusive, multi-stakeholder Summit. Heads of State of countries in the global North and South, and leaders of international organizations and development banks, business leaders and heads of major philanthropic organizations, figures from the academic world and civil society answered the call of the June Summit and came to participate in discussions on these crucial issues and the global repercussions. More than 100 countries were represented at the Summit.

    What were the results?

    Based on the discussions held during the Summit (six high-level round tables and more than 40 side events), guidelines and key avenues for reform were included in a document of ambition and a call to action: the Paris Pact for People and the Planet. Today supported by more than 35 countries, this Pact may be used as a barometer to measure the progress obtained in the coming months.

    What will the follow-up be to the Summit and the Paris Pact for People and the Planet?

    Looking ahead to the many international events taking place in late 2023 and the following years, a monitoring committee for the Paris Pact for People and the Planet was set up. It will allow those who took part in the Summit to consult with each other and assess the progress made ahead of the major international events: the Annual Meetings of the IMF and the World Bank Group (13-15 October 2023), the sixth Paris Peace Forum (10-11 November 2023), COP28 (30 November-12 December 2023), the United Nations Summit of the Future (22-23 September 2024), and the G20 Summit in Brazil (18-19 November 2024). This consultation work will help identify the fields in which not enough progress has been made, and jointly, at their international events, leaders can be called on to accelerate their efforts.
