Climate Change: Toward A Paradigm Shift?
About this event

27 rue Saint-Guillaume, 75007, Paris
The COP 27 recently led to a breakthrough on “loss and damage” funding to support developing countries suffering from the worst effects of climate change. A plan to reform international financial institutions so they can help countries cut their carbon emissions also emerged from COP 27. In the United States, the Inflation Reduction Act will bring a 369 billion investment in energy security and climate change, marking America’s return into the concert of nations determined to fight climate change. Yet many challenges remain, including getting other big players to commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions; increasing investments towards renewable energy; achieving recognition of the social cost of carbon; and, in countries with large numbers of “climatosceptics”, winning over public opinion on the urgent need to take action.
