Is the international system equipped to manage climate risk?
This event is held in partnership with Chatham House.

Roughly two dozen international organizations, mostly in the United Nations family, foster cooperation and set the global agenda on a range of critical issues, including health, water, energy, environment, food, migration, security and development. Collectively they provide the world with a critical safety net. But it was largely built before the impacts of anthropogenic climate change were widely understood, which begs the question: is this system fit for purpose in a climate-changing world? This session will discuss how climate risks are seen by international organizations, what innovative approaches to risk management are emerging and what else might need to be done.
