Climate Week NYC 2020 webinar - Climate action: If not now, then when?

24 Sept 2020
14:00 - 15:30

This event is part of Climate Week NYC, organised by the Climate Group. It takes place from 21 to 27 September 2020. As the focus shifts to how we rebuild after COVID-19, Climate Week NYC 2020 will explore what lessons we can learn in the pursuit of a net-zero future through just transition.

Governments are failing to match the level of ambition required to meet the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C limit, the long-term temperature goal (LTTG). Governments’ current commitments set the world on course for warming of about 2.8°C. Incremental improvements to these plans will not be enough. Rather, as this webinar will seek to explain, transformational changes, both at global and sectoral levels, are necessary to achieve the LTTG. COVID-19 recovery packages present both opportunities and threats for governments to enhance climate action and build resilience to climate change.
