Development & Climate days

ODI Environment and Climate Change - Sat, 2014-12-06 00:00
​For the first time in history, an opportunity exists to integrate global efforts to tackle climate change and poverty, setting the world on a path to achieve zero extreme poverty and zero net emissions within a generation.

The frameworks to be agreed in 2015 must work together to this end. But how can climate and poverty agendas be best connected?

Join us at COP20 in Lima for two days of innovative approaches and incisive dialogue, focused on bringing zero-zero within reach.
