Over the last several years, we have witnessed a barrage of commitments from governments, businesses and others who have promised action to slow climate change and create a more sustainable world. Yet, too often these promises have gone unfulfilled. As the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is time for world leaders to back up their words with action.

The question is: Will they deliver?

This year’s Stories to Watch will feature WRI’s new President and CEO Ani Dasgupta, who stepped into the role in 2021. Ani will share insights into the big stories in 2022, including what it will take for governments and businesses to translate their commitments into real action.

We will discuss some of the world’s most pressing questions: How to accelerate the energy transition? Will net-zero climate commitments become more credible? What will happen to the bold pledges to end deforestation, the surge in electric vehicles, and much more.

We hope you will join us!
