While the United Nations has warned that we must reduce emissions by 50% by 2030 to limit global warming to 1.5°C, mitigate environmental degradation, and halt catastrophic biodiversity loss, the latest assessment from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shows that we are well on our way to missing those targets. The task calls for an unprecedented scaling up of public and private finance to support both climate mitigation and adaptation. While the challenge is straightforward, the specific policies and strategies are not. Establishing a consensus on what to do and how to do it, both within and between countries and regions, will be the defining challenge of this generation and those yet to come.
Building the Green Consensus is one of two feature events at the center of our 2021 Climate Week coverage. Register now to join us for both events.
