The Importance of a Just Transition to Net Zero Emissions

14th September 2023WebinarOnline

What is needed to green the economy in a way that is fair and inclusive to everyone? Historically, developed countries, driven by the pursuit of progress and economic prosperity, have contributed the most to global emissions. The legacy of their carbon-intensive development has resulted in an imbalance that perpetuates climate injustice. In this webinar, we will have a closer look at factors that have driven emissions, the complexity of assigning contribution to specific countries and the intrinsic linkage between poverty and climate crisis reflected under the umbrella of a just transition.

You will learn about:

- Historical contribution of countries to global cumulative greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions - The disparities of production-based and consumption-based emissions - The correlation between poverty and the climate crisis
