However, NO representative from Costa Rica or Central America appear on the list.

“The Leaders Summit on Climate will underscore the urgency – and the economic benefits – of stronger climate action. It will be a key milestone on the road to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) this November in Glasgow,” says the White House on its official site on March 26.

In addition, the White House reported, the meeting will serve to highlight examples of projects with great climate ambition that could generate well-paying jobs and that will help those who will be most impacted by climate change.

“By the time of the Summit, the United States will announce an ambitious 2030 emissions target as its new Nationally Determined Contribution under the Paris Agreement,” says the WH.
