Policies are required urgently “to make homes cosier and heated with clean heat pumps, ensure new houses are energy-efficient and can cope with heatwaves, drive the shift to electric vehicles, and encourage people to eat less meat”- The Evening Standard
This means it’s more important than ever to work towards efficient and insulant homes, carbon neutral transportation, and zero emission, sustainable buildings.
The UK is seeking to bring governments, business, civil society and young people together to accelerate progress on the following shared challenges of climate change. There are five different presidency themes – adaptation and resilience, nature based solutions, energy transitions, clean transport and finance.
Adaptation and resilience
Delivering the practical solutions needed to adapt to climate impacts and address loss and damage to the natural world
Ensuring the importance of nature and sustainable land use are part of global action on climate change and a clean, green recovery.
Accelerating the global transition to clean energy.
Driving the global transition to zero emission transport.
Mobilising public and private finance flows at scale for mitigation and adaptation.
The full itinerary of the event is here, with some sessions being streamed on Youtube.
