Dec 1, 2021 | 12:00 – 13:00 Download .ics


For several weeks, representatives of governments across the globe gathered in Glasgow to discuss plans for climate mitigation and adaptation. But the meetings were dominated by representatives of the world’s most advanced economies, often to the detriment of the places where the majority of the world’s population lives: the developing world.

In the first of many more installments to come on #INETLive, Richard Kozul-Wright of UNCTAD, Patrick Bond of the University of Johannesburg, and author Maude Barlow will discuss the disproportionate impact climate change has on the developing world and the ways to best address it that are often left out of the conversation.

To Be Discussed

  • How to finance green energy initiatives in the developing world?
  • How can developing countries advance their economies without fossil fuel emissions?
  • Will the developed world horde green IP like it did with COVID vaccine technology?
  • What is the role of climate reparations?
  • How does climate change endanger clean water in the developing world, how to ensure the right to clean water?
