abrdn Sustainability Summit 2022 - The climate crisis and the necessity of a just transition
In the words of the UN Secretary General, the recent scientific reports on climate change are a ‘code red’ for humanity . To avoid the most catastrophic impacts, ambitious coordinated action is necessary and should meet the needs of the most vulnerable populations. In many ways, Asia Pacific holds the key to the low-carbon transition.
In this session, we will look at risks and opportunities brought by climate change in Asia Pacific, at the need to achieve a just transition in coordination withboth the public and private sectors.
