Living in a heating world: lessons from the global South

Living in a heating world: lessons from the global South

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

in partnership with ONE

This ThinkIn was broadcast live with an online audience and an in person audience at Cop27 in Sharm El Sheikh.

Bangladesh faces an array of climate hazards, from cyclones to dangerously high salt levels in soil, but has had success in adapting to change. Zambia, where droughts have hit hydropower, has effectively scaled up solar energy to compensate.

Taking place during the Cop27 climate talks in Egypt, this ThinkIn will ask: what lessons can be learned from adaptation and transition in the global South? And, when the hard limits of adaptation are reached, what must compensation look like to address the impacts of climate shocks?

How can the world’s leaders be made to work together around policies and financing to address climate calamity, particularly in highly vulnerable countries?

This session is part of the ONE Talks series, held in partnership with Tortoise. ONE is an organisation dedicated to ending extreme poverty and preventable disease. ONE Talks looks at today’s global challenges and seeks new approaches to how we solve them. It convenes experts, activists, and people with lived experience to give insights, pose challenges to those in power, and help construct the best way forward to build a fairer world for all.
