Join World Bank President Jim Yong Kim for an agenda-setting conversation about the economic policies, investments and coalitions that can deliver a transformative agreement on climate change at the UN Climate Conference a year from now in Paris.
Collective ambition and common action is critical as every nation develops plans for new greenhouse gas emission targets, increased resilience to climate change and financing to implement these changes. The Paris agreement is an opportunity to generate economic growth and change the way we live for the better for generations, Kim says.
