The COVID-19 and climate crises are monumental challenges that must be addressed in tandem, through the prism of sustainable and resilient development. Governments must use all the tools in their toolbox to protect lives and livelihoods and build safer, more sustainable, and more inclusive societies that leave no one behind.
During this virtual discussion, speakers will showcase concrete opportunities for policymakers, the public sector and civil society to use climate action to support rapid and inclusive recovery from COVID-19, framed around the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement on climate change. They will assess how countries can deliver enhanced NDCs and long-term climate strategies in the lead-up to COP26, and measures to strengthen adaptation and resilience to future shocks.
This event is co-hosted by the United Kingdom Mission to the UN and World Resources Institute and organized in conjunction with the 2020 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Featured speakers will include Zac Goldsmith, Minister for the Environment for the United Kingdom. Additional speaker information will be added shortly.
