Madrid is hosting UN’s Climate Summit COP25 from December 2 to 13 to reach a consensus on climate change.

"In the crucial 12 months ahead, it is essential that we secure more ambitious national commitments - particularly from the main emitters - to immediately start reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a pace consistent to reaching carbon neutrality by 2050,” said UN Secretary General António Guterres.

The 197 parties that make up the treaty will try to reach an agreement. The main themes of the summit will be green and inclusive economy, governance, climate and biodiversity, human development, water and sanitation, energy, innovative development financing, sustainable cities and territories, Resilience to natural disasters and food security.

Popular personalities from the world of politics, science and economics including Greta Thunberg will attend the event.

The event aims to bring together as many as 25,000 people from 200 countries in the fight against climate change. It is the twenty-fifth conference of the parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Aberration in weather patterns indicate a climate change of disastrous proportions that is affecting the delicate ecological balance. From Australian bushfire, Delhi’s ‘off-the-chart’ pollution level, to the Amazon forest’s worst ever wildfire, the implications can be seen everywhere.

The global temperatures are expected to increase by 3.4 to 3.9°C this century, leading to destructive climate impacts according to UN.

“Currently, not enough is being done to meet the three climate goals: reducing emissions 45 per cent by 2030; achieving climate neutrality by 2050 (which means a net zero carbon footprint), and stabilizing global temperature rise at 1.5°C by the end of the century. Because the clock is ticking on climate change, the world cannot afford to waste more time, and a bold, decisive, ambitious way forward needs to be agreed,” says UN.
