Last year’s COP 26 conference saw developed countries pledging to cut back on fossil fuels, end deforestation, and provide US$100 billion to developing countries to finance climate change. Since then, global temperatures have risen 1.1°C and are set to rise by another 10% by 2030, and only 24 out of 193 countries have strengthened their carbon-cutting plans, with some even rolling back on their commitments.

As global leaders gather for COP 27 in November 2022, these commitments and other pertinent questions come to the fore:

  • What will climate change impact be on the least developed countries, and how will they be compensated for the damage?
  • How can private investments be channelled more effectively towards a low-carbon economy?
  • What role can financial hubs like Singapore play in assisting the world to avert a climate catastrophe?

Attend the NBS Knowledge Lab webinar on “Climate Change: From Risk to Resilience” where industry experts will explore the critical role of climate change education and how to harness its transformative power.
