Climate, COVID-19, and the collaboration we need
The COVID-19 pandemic has demanded an unprecedented global response. With every nation experiencing the social and economic shock comes the stark realisation that we must adopt new and better ways to deal with global crises, including the climate emergency. It has highlighted that long-term complex challenges and short-term crises demand a new response and new ways of working. This event will bring together international think tanks to discuss the kind of collaboration and action that is needed now to achieve transformative change, and prepare us for a radically different world. As we look ahead, what does the world need to do differently? And what can the world learn from the pandemic and the global crisis of inequality that can help communities tackle the climate crisis?
Time: 11:00 - 12:00 GMT+1
This is the first online event in a series hosted by IIED and the International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD) on the climate crisis and COVID-19 – working together for the change we need, which will be hosted between June and October 2020.
