IEF: Creating Resilience to Climate Change: Lessons from the pandemic
The August 2021 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report stated that “human-induced climate change is already affecting many weather and climate extremes in every region across the globe.” Build Back Better was the common theme as the global economies started to rebuild post pandemic. A study by the UN and Oxford University in March 2021, however, found that just 18% of announced recovery spending had gone toward green investments. What lessons can we take from the pandemic as we build back better? What are some specific opportunities for industry and governments to work together to improve resilience to climate change? What is a sustainable path of growth that will enable India to grow its economy and meet climate goals? How can climate resilience enter as a key variable in the functioning of industries, especially those that have high vulnerability to climate risk? What role will sustainable supply chains play in developing climate resilience? Speakers Sunita Narain, Director General, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) Tengku Muhammad Taufik, President & Group Chief Executive Officer, PETRONAS Jean-Pascal Tricoire, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Schneider Electric Chair Atul Arya, Senior Vice President & Chief Energy Strategist, IHS Markit
