A plan for the Amazon wildfires
The scope of the Amazon wildfires is growing over time. This was a priority topic at the Summit. A plan for the Amazon, which contained two key measures to stop this catastrophe, was announced:
- Emergency assistance, with immediate financing to stop wildfires;
- A medium-term reforestation plan.
A potential initiative to fight fires in sub-Saharan Africa
Emmanuel Macron also addressed the forest fires currently ravaging a number of countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The possibility of launching an initiative similar to that announced for the Amazon is currently being considered.
Protection for victims of sexual violence
To support the physical and psychological recovery of women who have suffered conflict-related sexual violence, an international fund was launched by Nobel Peace Prize winners Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad. The G7 States undertook to make financial contributions to this fund.
