POTUS and VP Harris have "gathered 40 heads of state including Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Jair Bolsonaro of Brazil, Pope Francis, Bill Gates, the heads of NATO and the World Bank, corporate executives" and others. 

The summit follows the EU agreeing to a provisional deal on "sweeping climate legislation that aims to slash the bloc's net greenhouse gas emissions by 55% compared to 1990 levels by 2030."

The White House is "attempting to use this meeting to encourage other countries to make commitments to slash emissions before 2030."
