Today, the disruptive potential of climate change is becoming increasingly evident. Both businesses and major urban hubs for production, trade and travel are often badly affected by international shocks irrespective of the source. While the globalization of production chains has brought systemic gains for the world economy, it has also exacerbated the speed and scope of contagion in the event of shocks and disruptions. Climate-related disruptions are also already testing the resilience of political institutions. Declining trust in government may lead to more reluctance on the part of politicians to take controversial steps needed to facilitate the low carbon, climate resilient transition. This panel will bring together leaders to explore how the world might secure its climate future.
This session will be followed by a reception.
