webinar theme:

Effective climate policy requires a rapid increase in monetary, political and civil investments and coordination at all levels of decision-making. At the same time, responses to climate change have to address the uneven impact of the crisis on vulnerable populations and the corresponding social challenges. How can the policy making that is required to address the climate crisis be made compatible with demands for increased economic justice and social equity? What strategies exist to include or exclude those vulnerable populations most immediately at risk from climate crises into the development and implementation of climate policy?

We invite you to join us on a webinar to discuss these questions with experts on climate change policy and ongoing struggles for social justice in the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. We bring together regional researchers and practitioners to discuss their experiences with the implementation of global agendas, equitable economic development practices and responses to climate challenges in the region. After exploring important sectoral approaches to addressing these challenges, we will focus in particular on possibilities for research-policy interfaces moving forward. Finally, the webinar gives an opportunity to reflect on discussions from the COP25 and to highlight cases where a focus on equitable economic development is being integrated into global climate policy making – and where it is not.

webinar series:

This webinar is one of a five-part series to evaluate, contextualize and operationalize existing research by Cities Alliance on equitable economic growth in cities of the Global South. Three research networks, working in Europe (N-AERUS), Africa (AURI) and LAC (REDEUS_LAC), collaborate to identify common problems cities face in pursuing social equity and economic growth, to share tested strategies for integrating policy making and research, and to disseminate these strategies to broader urban contexts. By targeting a global audience, we can share experience both within and beyond the regional focus of each webinar.
