Some 50 heads of state gathered on 12 December to discuss finance and climate change at the One Planet Summit organised by French President Macron. The get-together came after US Donald Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

RFI speaks to three members of civil society who attended the event to understand what is at stake and what are their expectations.


Benoît Leguet, Managing Director of I4CE - Institute for Climate Economics.

Maxime Combes, economist and spokesperson on climate issues for Attac France, an anti-globalisation group.

Sven Harmeling, Climate change advocacy coordinator for the NGO CARE International.
