The 23 September UN Climate Summit in New York brought together 100 Heads of State, along with government ministers and leaders from international organizations, business, finance, civil society and local communities.

The objective of the Summit was to mobilize the political support and momentum necessary to reach a global agreement on climate change in 2015 and galvanize action on the ground across all sectors.

The Summit fully achieved its objective, as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon explained in his summary at the end of the meeting.

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has meanwhile compiled a report on the climate action announcements of countries.

And the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research in Oslo has included the announcements collected by IISD in a world map.
