Cities: Bracing for Climate Change
Jan 13, 2020 Season 1 Episode 4
The Beam - United People of Climate Action

Adaptation to climate change in developing countries is vital and it is a high and urgent priority for governments. Unfortunately, COP25 in Madrid showed the vast disconnect between the urgency that some communities are feeling at home and the pace of action from our governments.

In this new episode we wanted to raise awareness about the importance of long-term climate change considerations, and feature some good examples of climate adaptation and mitigation strategies. 

Guests:

  • Amanda Ikert, Head of Adaptation Implementation, C40,
  • Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr, Mayor of Freetown.
