#COVID19 vaccines are reaching high income countries quickly, while the world’s poorest have none at all.

Science is succeeding — but solidarity is failing.

Global solidarity will save lives, protect people & help defeat this vicious, mutating virus.

A new momentum is emerging.

Many large emitters have committed to achieving zero net emissions by 2050.

The main goal of the @UN this year is to build a global coalition for carbon neutrality.

Every country, city & business must adopt an ambitious roadmap to reach this target.

Our world has reached a heart-wrenching milestone: #COVID19 has now claimed two million lives.

Sadly, the impact of the pandemic has been made worse by the absence of global coordination.

In the memory of those two million souls, the world must act with far greater solidarity.

It is a moral imperative to help those already suffering from the effects of climate change to adapt.

Yet, huge gaps remain in our support for developing countries.

Adaptation is crucial and must not be the forgotten component of #ClimateAction.

Quoted @WMO

2020 was one of 3 hottest years on record, along with 2016 and 2019.
6 warmest years have been since 2015.
It was the warmest decade on record, continuing a long-term trend that shows no sign of reversal.
Temperatures are only part of the story
#ClimateChange has many impacts

Yet another stark reminder of the relentless pace of climate change, which is destroying lives & livelihoods across our planet.

It can be reversed by making peace with nature, the defining task of the 21st century for everyone, everywhere.

It is crucial to address the challenges faced by many people working from home - including poor working conditions, inadequate wages & increased health risks.

To achieve net zero emissions by 2050, we need an urgent transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

It is essential that developed economies support developing countries in this shift.

Quoted @antonioguterres

We have been abusing our planet as if we had a spare one.

2021 must be the year to reconcile humanity with nature.

With smart policies & investments, we can chart a path that brings health to all, revives economies & builds resilience.


Nous exploitons notre planète comme si nous en avions une autre.

2021 doit être l’année de la réconciliation entre l’humanité et la nature.

En prenant les bonnes décisions, nous pouvons forger un chemin qui garantisse la santé pour tous, renforce les économies & la résilience.

To mark the 75th anniversary of the @UN, we asked people around the world to share their hopes, fears & priorities.

Over 1.5 million people responded.

They demanded greater international solidarity and support for those in need.

Now is time to deliver.

The only winner of conflict during a pandemic is the pandemic itself.

That is why I reiterate my call for a global ceasefire.

We need to focus on our common enemy - #COVID19 - and step up our efforts towards peace and reconciliation.

2021 is the International Year of Health and Care Workers.

I'm deeply grateful for the courage & commitment of all health workers on the front lines of the global fight against #COVID19.

We must ensure they receive the support & protection they need.
