Climate change is arguably the biggest challenge of our time: affecting the physical environment, but also impacting political and institutional structures and therefore the stability of countries worldwide. Whether it is low-, middle-, or high-income countries, similar risks apply to all. As the risks from climate change are omnipresent, workable solutions can only be identified when all parts of government, business, and society come together.
Global policymakers, influencers, academics, non-governmental organisations, and the international community are gathering in Spain between 2 and 13 December to discuss how to accelerate action against climate change. The conference is focusing on six areas that are key to curbing greenhouse gas emissions: finance, energy transition, industry transition, nature-based solutions, cities, and resilience and adaptation.
We’ve picked three of these areas to showcase some of the innovative projects we’re working on.
