Day 3 at COP27 with Allegra Stratton. Featuring Nina Seega, Cameron Hepburn and Augusta Senenssie
Today, RE:TV@COP27 focuses on Finance Day, exploring how the financial system can be restructured to address the climate crisis, redirecting the global economy towards net zero at the same time as restoring our degraded lands and oceans.
Allegra Stratton meets Cameron Hepburn, Director of the Oxford University Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, who considers what what will be required in order to restructure the global economy so nature is at the heart of uit, and explores how we might incentivise the flow of finance towards cleaner, greener technology.
Nina Seega, Research Director for Sustainable Finance at the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, discusses the importance of measuring risks attached to climate change properly and explains why nature-based solutions to the climate crisis are better long-term investments than infrastructure projects.
And in the Blue Zone, we hear from Augusta Senenssie, founder of Walinda Lingo, on the importance of using finance to help people in developing countries who are already experiencing the impact of climate change.
