The Road to Resilience: Realizing the Benefits of the Energy Transition

Date: Sept. 22, 2022

Time: 1:30-3:30 pm ET

´╗┐Location: Volvo Hall, Scandinavia House ´╗┐
´╗┐58 Park Ave, New York, NY 10016

This event will bring together countries, experts, and climate fund representatives to discuss how measuring the success the energy transition extends beyond emissions reductions, particularly for most vulnerable countries. Conversation will be framed through the lens of island nations on the frontlines of climate change – who contribute least to overall emissions but suffer disproportionate impacts – and how building climate-resilient infrastructure can also build societal and economic resilience.

An expert panel will present case studies of resilience on the ground and then participate in a lively discussion on how the climate and development communities can come together to help small island states build resilience to external shocks.

We’re looking forward to hosting this event in-person during New York Climate Week at Scandinavia House’s Volvo Hall and will include open conversation and refreshments, with lunch and registration starting at 1 pm and networking space following the event. The panel will also be livestreamed for those unable to attend in person.
