Driving Systemic Change: Policy and Finance for Real Zero Solutions
In order to make the needed transformation and adaptation to climate changes, transformative solutions and the implementation of effective projects need to be promoted and financed. But all projects and solutions are not the best choices to mitigate or adapt to climate changes. Many solutions focus only one one aspect of the problem (mitigation, off-setting, …) without taking the all spectrum of impacts (on communities, on biodiversity and nature). To implement truly sustainable solutions, we need to go further than only technical and ‘efficiency focus’ solutions.
The event will focus on the agricultural sector and the type of solutions that are promoting.
No interpretation will be available.
Location: UNFCCC site, Tutankhamun Room. See access map.
The event will be accessible to the UNFCCC website for those who are registered to the COP27 but are not on-site and also will be Livestreamed on the official UNFCCC Youtube channel.
