Building Resilience in the Face of Climate Change

2020 was the hottest year ever recorded, with record-breaking extreme weather and climate-driven disasters from fires to floods to hurricanes. Climate shocks exacerbate existing challenges like food insecurity, mass migration, and conflict, particularly in low-income countries. This session will discuss investments in building climate resilience around the world, addressing climate-driven challenges in the developing world, and engaging with China to address climate solution, as the world’s two largest emitters and economies.

Speakers include:
Leo Bastos, Head of Carbon Business Model, Bayer; Lisa Epifani, Manager, ESG and Sustainability, Chevron; Leo Martinez-Diaz, Senior Advisor to Special Envoy Kerry, U.S. Department of State; Karl Hofmann, President & CEO, PSI
