At a New York Climate Week Event on 20 September, World Bank President David Malpass repeatedly refused to confirm that he accepts climate science, leading to hundreds of groups and individuals to call for the President to resign or be replaced.

- Declaring an end to all financing of fossil fuels by the Bank
- Ensuring no more delays in aligning with the Paris Agreement
- Ending the lack of transparency on the Bank's climate finance
