Distinguished SDG Lecture – Climate Change: Vulnerability and Adaptation

CUHK Event, SDSN Hong Kong, SDG13 Climate Action | 19 May 2022

Evidence is clear: the world is facing a climate emergency.  In 2010 – 2019, average annual global greenhouse gas emissions reached their highest levels in human history. Against this backdrop, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (COP26) called upon countries to commit to accelerate climate action, forging the Glasgow Climate Pact.  As the world grapples with keeping 1.5°C within reach, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group III’s report gives us a reason to opt for optimism: we have the tools and know-how to halve emissions. By adopting the right policies, putting in place the necessary infrastructure and technology, making far-reaching lifestyle and behaviour changes would enable us to make strides toward SDG 13 – Climate Action.

Date and Time: 

Rome | 19 May 2022 (Thursday) 11:00–12:30 UTC+2
