A lesser degree: Why climate change matters


05. A lesser degree: Why climate change matters

This episode of The Weekly Tradecast talks about how we can reduce the negative effects of climate change with Richard Kozul-Wright, director of UNCTAD's globalization and development strategies division.

Much of Europe has been seeing soaring temperatures and battling to control huge wildfires this summer. Scientists say the heatwave is consistent with the global impact of our changing environment.

Hundreds of millions of people around the world -- many in developing countries -- are suffering as extreme weather destroys crops, threatens development and makes entire areas unliveable.

Tune in to hear Mr. Kozul-Wright on why climate change is not going away and why we must support developing countries with adaptation and mitigation to stop it from getting worse.
