The Clinton Global Initiative is taking its formula of a powerhouse gathering of global leaders to a new part of the world.

Former President Bill Clinton said Monday that the first Clinton Global Initiative Latin America is scheduled for December 8-10 in Rio de Janeiro.

He made the announcement in New York City, at the mid-year meeting for his annual conference, which brings together leaders in politics, business and philanthropy to tackle the world's biggest problems. He was joined by the Brazilian city's mayor, Eduardo Paes, along with former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced an initiative a group of the world's cities would be taking, the creation of a risk assessment framework for evaluating risks from climate change.
