This new series of short WRI podcasts looks at why COP26 matters for different issues. In this episode Nicholas Walton looks at energy with Jennifer Layke. Other episodes explore oceans, cities, the circular economy, food and land use, clean air, business, and an overall look at the state of play ahead of COP26.
“For people, for climate and for innovation you absolutely want to focus on cities, because a lot of the problems we have to solve — for climate, for development, for poverty — are collective action problems. Society must come together and solve them: governments, civil society, businesses. And cities are a fantastic incubator for solutions.”
