A New Climate Economy - The Economic Case for International Action - Paris and Beyond

25th November 2015


Ahead of important Paris COP negotiations, this webinar focuses on the work of The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, and their work on the economic benefits and costs of acting on climate change. It also considers the role of international cooperation to deliver both economic growth and reduced climate risk.

The New Climate Economy is the Global Commission’s flagship project. It provides independent and authoritative evidence on the relationship between actions which can strengthen economic performance and those which reduce the risk of dangerous climate change. Its work is carried out by a partnership of leading research institutes and an Advisory Panel of world-leading economists, chaired by Lord Nicholas Stern.

In July 2015, the Global Commission published its second annual report - Seizing the Global Opportunity: Partnerships for Better Growth and a Better Climate. The report identifies 10 key areas of opportunity for stronger climate action which will also bring significant economic benefits.

Your Presenter:

Russell Bishop, a senior economist at the NCE, and one of the report’s lead authors, will discuss the findings and the implications ahead of the Paris summit.
