What’s Next for Global Cooperation on Climate Change?
Join us for a virtual Devex Newsmaker event on Thursday, July 28, with Patricia Espinosa, former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to learn what’s next for global cooperation on climate efforts.
Attention on climate change is divided this year. While searing heat waves in Europe make headlines, global crises such as the Ukraine war and food price hikes are interrupting the momentum necessary to curb carbon emissions. The disconnect between climate effects and attention are similarly reflected in financial commitments: Despite the fact that countries were asked to make more ambitious pledges at last year’s U.N. Climate Change Conference, current funding levels remain insufficient to achieve temperature and clean energy goals.
Against this backdrop, Devex reporter William Worley sits down with Espinosa to discuss the global implications of recent climate and political events and to hear her key recommendations for the future of climate action.
