The Road to COP 27: Distinguished Lecture by Stephane Hallegatte
FromOct 10, 2022 To Oct 10, 2022
COP27 Presidency, Dr. Mahmoud Mohieldin UN Climate Change High-Level Champion for COP27 and the World Bank Group in partnership with the Center for Economic and Financial Research & Studies (CEFRS), the Economic Research Forum (ERF), the Egyptian Center for Economic Studies (ECES) and the Institute of National Planning (INP) have the pleasure to invite you to actively participate in Climate and Development Distinguished Lecture Series.
The series aims at advancing the global conversation about how to better link the global climate change and development agendas.
This first presentation will explore the climate change challenge from a development perspective, highlighting the synergies and trade-offs between short-term economic and development goals, such as poverty reduction and economic growth, and climate change impacts and objectives. Using recent reports from the World Bank Group, other institutions, and academia, as well as countries’ experience, it will discuss how to communicate, design, and implement climate action in the development context, where it is never only about climate but about achieving development objectives (including those related to climate change).
