In the leadup to President Biden’s April 22–23 Leaders Summit on Climate, the Atlantic Council presents the “Raising Ambitions” events series. The series will focus on the high climate ambitions that the Biden Administration hopes to realize at home and abroad, and it will highlight key technologies that can help reach these goals, sectoral approaches to decarbonization, and heightened country commitments to climate action.
