Leading from the front: responding with urgency to climate emergency
In the last year, the IPCC issued a stark warning of the impacts that exceeding 1.5°C will have for the world, particularly for the poorest members of society, and more recently the IPBES raised the alarm that more than one million species face imminent extinction if urgent action is not taken to protect nature.
The Least Developed Countries (LDCs) are the 47 poorest countries who will be worst affected by climate impacts. But rather than seeing themselves as victims, LDCs intend to show the world what is possible with real commitment to build a resilient and prosperous future.
We're delighted to be joined by speakers from across the global South and North to discuss responding with urgency to the climate emergency and financing urgent ambition.
These high-level panel discussions will explore these issues with representatives of the LDCs, grassroots community organisations and climate action leaders. This event is being held in collaboration with Willis Towers Watson, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and the Global Resilience Partnership (GRP).
