Climate Futures Webinar Series: The Future of Mitigation

Mitigation measures are crucial to addressing the climate change crisis. The international community is starting to recognize the urgent need to decarbonize, but progress remains slow, with global greenhouse gas emissions continuing to rise. As the world recovers from COVID-19, there is a risk that governments and companies may revert to carbon-intensive business as usual, rather than developing and deploying policies for a green recovery.

In this second event in DAI’s Climate Futures Webinar series—The Future of Mitigation—our Global Climate Director Donald Lunan explored practical examples of mitigation emerging from projects around the world.

DAI has been supporting communities, businesses, and governments to take affirmative action on climate change for more than a decade. Through our work on mitigation, we have identified five areas that are critical for the successful implementation of climate mitigation interventions: policy, equitable transitions, technology and innovation, knowledge and learning, and finance. The webinar panelists shared their experiences and observations from the field concerning these areas.

Panelists included:

The presentations were followed by a discussion in response to questions posed by the audience on the future of mitigation.

This is the second event in our Climate Futures webinar series. The first webinar focused was on Adaptation; if you missed it you can find the video of the event here.
