Join us at the Forum on Climate Change on April 29!
2021 was a milestone in the global fight against climate change and, ahead of COP27, some important commitments and steps forward have been made on the path to decarbonization. But the war in Ukraine could act as a complete “game-changer”: prices of oil and gas further increased, thus harming global economic recovery while raising questions on the future of the energy transition. On one hand, in the short-term countries that rely heavily on energy imports are likely to be damaged; on the other hand, today’s situation might be seen as an opportunity to accelerate the pace of the transition, provided that sufficient financial resources are mobilized. This means that a balance should be found between keeping the green transition on top of the global agenda and the need to preserve a resilient and lasting recovery. What to expect from the multilateral community after COP26, also in light of the new context emerging from the Russia-Ukraine conflict? How to keep the green transition on track while escaping the fate of a new economic crisis? Which further steps should be taken by public and private actors to channel financial resources to “green” projects and, ultimately, to protect the future of our planet?
Green transition after the war in Ukraine: on or off track?
