Global Climate Action - COP 24 and the year ahead
Date and Time
PO Box 45
UNAA Victoria invites you to this important panel discussion as we move between the achievements of COP 24 to the UN Climate Summit in September.
“Katowice has shown once more the resilience of the Paris Agreement, our solid roadmap for climate action,” said UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
The UN Climate summit will look at six areas - energy transition; climate finance and carbon pricing; industry transition; nature-based solutions; cities and local action and resilience.
What will be the impact on Australian Government policy? Will corporate players continue to sign up to new initiatives embracing renewable energy and investment?
Expert speakers - many of whom attended COP24 - will take part in this discussion, which will be moderated by Megan Brayne, Director, Comhar Group.
