Join WRI’s President & CEO Ani Dasgupta for insights into the big stories that will shape the environment, sustainability and the world in 2022

WASHINGTON (January 7, 2022)—World Resources Institute (WRI) will host its annual Stories to Watch presentation, featuring the institute’s new President and CEO Ani Dasgupta, on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 from 9:00-10:15am EST / 15:00-16:15 CET. 

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. 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.

Join Ani as he shares insights and ideas about the most pressing questions for the year ahead: How do we accelerate the energy transition? Will net-zero climate commitments become more credible? What will happen to the bold commitments to end deforestation? Will the surge in electric vehicles make a dent in emissions? And, what are the big events and political moments to watch in the coming year?

Now in its 19th year, Stories to Watch is a go-to event for media, government officials, business executives, consultants and experts. As was the case in 2021, it will be 100% virtual this year. There will be time for Q&A with Ani and other WRI experts after the presentation.
