4.SOUNDBITE (English) António Guterres, Secretary-General, United Nations:
“We are still facing a dramatic climate emergency. I would say that the goal to limit temperature rise to 1.5 degrees is in intensive care. We risk seeing it lost irreversibly in the years to come. It's absolutely essential to reduce emissions, and we are increasing them. I am very appreciative of the European policy to reach carbon neutrality [by] 2050, and to dramatically decrease emissions until 2030. At the same time, conflicts are multiplying, and we have now the dramatic impact of the Russian invasion in Ukraine, that has led independently of the suffering of the Ukrainian people, to a terrible crisis also in food, energy and in finance. Now, in this context, it is obvious that no country can solve these problems alone. We need more than ever multilateralism. But not any kind of multilateralism, because no organization can also solve the problems of this world alone. We need a networked multilateralism and the partnership between the EU and the UN is a fundamental pillar of this networked multilateralism. The EU is the strongest financial supporter, together with the member states, of UN activities. But more than the financial support, we have excellent in-depth cooperation - from peace and security to sustainable and inclusive development to human rights - but also in addressing together the challenges of climate change, of COVID, and all the other problems that we face. So, it is for me an enormous pleasure to receive Ursula von der Leyen and the EU Commission for this joint retreat, EU – UN, in which we will make our cooperation even deeper, even stronger, and even more effective for the people we care for. ”

6.SOUNDBITE (English) Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission:
“The first is the warming food prices. Russia is blocking the export of grain from Ukraine and thus bringing hunger to millions of people. The blockade of the Black Sea must stop and I'm very grateful Secretary General for your tireless work to try to create a solution for the export of Ukraine's grain via the Black Sea as long as the Black Sea is blocked by Russia. We try as European Union to offer alternative routes for Ukraine. Be it by road, be it by train or for example on the river.”
7.Various shots, Guterres with the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
8.SOUNDBITE (English) Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission:
“The fossil fuel prices are skyrocketing. With heavy negative impact on livelihoods. The best answer to that is massive investment in renewable energy renewable energy is clean. It is by now more cost efficient than fossil fuels, and it creates independence but of course, we have also to work intensively to make it possible that the energy prices stay at a decent level. And we have come forward with a new power program 300 billion euros to make it possible for the European Union on one hand to diversify away from Russian fossil fuels. The second pillar is very important. It is energy savings, energy efficiency and the third pillar is a massive investment in renewable energy.”
