Organizer: ICTSD

Date: Sat / Dec. 5 - 14:00

Time: 14:00

Area: Blue Zone

Effectively addressing the challenges of climate change requires significant changes at multiple levels of policy making. This includes the global trade and investment systems. Trade has the potential to be a powerful tool for scaling up clean energy and climate-friendly goods, and for transferring mitigation and adaption technologies. This session will highlight findings from a joint ICTSD – World Economic Forum project, the E15 Initiative, in collaboration with Climate Strategies, Chatham House and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, which proposes innovative options for the global trade- and climate change regimes that can help achieve climate and development objectives.
