G-20 Summit, Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, September 24-25, 2009
World leaders and their top financial officials will be gathering to discuss the investments needed to drive a new energy economy that will create jobs and fight global warming. The G-20 Summit, to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 24-25, 2009 became an important stop on the road to Copenhagen when on July 9 President Obama and the leaders of 16 other major economies called for G-20 finance ministers to lay out how to "substantially increase financial resources to help developing nations create low-carbon growth plans and deploy clean energy technologies." An effective outcome in Pittsburgh on climate financing could be a critical step toward a fair, ambitious, and binding deal in Copenhagen this December.
