Annual Meetings 2021: Making Climate Action Count
Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our age. It is no longer a question of potential future impacts, that could make communities poorer, exacerbate vulnerabilities or worsen lives and livelihoods. These impacts are already happening, affecting developed and developing countries alike. At a time when global action on climate will take center stage, it is particularly important to look at how country-led efforts are making a difference: because it is here that the battle against the climate crisis will be won – or lost.
How are countries and businesses acting on climate? What do these solutions look like? What does it take to translate policies on adaptation into tangible outcomes on the ground, like preparing coastal communities for sea level rise? How can countries decarbonize energy systems and get off coal, ensuring a just transition out of high polluting industries? Join us on journey of effective climate action around the globe to find out.
