The United Nations system Chief Executives Board (CEB), under the leadership of the Secretary-General, initiated a process to align the strengths of all organizations of the UN system in coordinated action to meet the challenges of climate change.

The objective of the CEB’s work is two-fold:

  • to support the process for an international agreement within the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC); and
  • to assist Member States at national, regional and global levels in their efforts to address the impacts of climate change.
