circular economy – G20’s vision on circular economy “focused on textiles and sustainable fashion, on circular cities, on education and training”. Member countries for the first time recognized the findings of the recent report IPBES I IPCC Feather The relationship between biodiversity and climate change, launched on 10 June.
sustainable finance -Focuses on agreement need financing For Security And this repair or reinstall of ecosystem, as a contribution to the ongoing debate on the future of the global financial system
Now what happened

According to what emerged during the summit, the nations of G7, With Mexico I South Koreahe claimed the piano Ben more ambitious than produced by the meeting of Naples, but it was not possible to cross resistors From Russiahandjob Indiahandjob Saudi Arab I China.

Meanwhile, the weather condition continues to worsen catastrophic eventsoccurred in Germany I China. On August 9, a new assessment on the state of climate change is expectedUnited Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), following the latest 2013 report and warnings issued to world leaders in 2018, called for immediate and drastic measures to avert the devastating effects of predicted extreme weather events.
NS new relationship, being developed by more than 230 authors from 65 countries, will increasingly confirm that human activities are responsible for accelerating global warming. according to the magazine scientific American, the document will include “a strong statement on the human impact on rising global temperatures as a result of the development of greenhouse gases”.
from the latest forecasts ofIPCC In 2013, seven years have passed in which global temperatures and pollution have continued their run. If Then the report warned today about the risks associated with a further increase in global warming, with images West Germany and from central china, we can already see the effects of extreme weather events on heavily man-made parts of the Earth.
