WEBINAR // Coping with Climate Change and Global Economic Turmoil

WEBINAR // Coping with Climate Change and Global Economic Turmoil

On September 29, 2022, The Bay Atlantic University and the Global Policy Institute held a timely discussion titled ” Coping with Climate Change and Global Economic Turmoil” via Zoom.

With the upcoming global climate summit COP27 in Egypt and the Group of 20 forum in Indonesia, November 2022 promises to be a critical month for sustainability as well as for the global economy. This year’s summits are particularly important as they take place in a general crisis environment. The world is still struggling to recover from the Covid 19 pandemic. Russia invaded Ukraine undermining Europe’s energy security, and the world is on the verge of a new recession. The global economy is further undermined by unprecedented high inflation and still unresolved supply chain constraints. With so much on the table, the COP27 and G20 leaders attending are pressured to deliver guidance on the economic as well as on the decarbonization fronts.
It is therefore critically important to better understand the policy choices confronting world leaders on the decarbonization agenda and how it could play a role in helping the global economy to recover.
