Sustainability

This webinar would look at what action governments around the world are taking to tackle the impacts of climate change. From low-lying countries having to consider major infrastructure projects to save communities near sea level to others having to develop plans to make their economies more robust to unpredictable weather, many governments around the world are putting in place plans to adapt to the impacts of climate change.

This event will look how governments around the world are dealing with the need to adapt – how they are assessing what needs to be done, how countries are developing investment plans to meet the challenge, and what support developing countries, which are often most at risk, need to survive.
