Confronting Dual Crises: Advancing Climate Progress During an Energy Crisis
A special RFF Live event at COP27 in Egypt examining how the world can confront the dual energy and climate crises
There’s wide acknowledgment that the world is in the middle of an energy crisis, underpinned by rapidly shifting economic conditions and significantly exacerbated by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. In response, many countries have taken steps to meet near-term energy needs and ease market impacts on households. How are imperatives around these two crises—the energy crisis and the climate crisis—aligning in this challenging time?
On Thursday, November 10 during COP 27, join leading experts for a panel discussion hosted by Resources for the Future (RFF) on how nations in different regions globally are balancing and advancing goals related to decarbonization, energy prices and sources, and the future security and transition of the energy system.
