75. No time to waste: Why we need far more investment around climate change and sustainable development
This episode of the Weekly Tradecast looks at investing in sustainable development to help save our planet with UNCTAD economists Joseph Clements and Anthony Miller.
Calls are growing more urgent for more spending on a clean-energy future and more support for developing countries bearing the brunt of climate change. The energy crisis is raising fears that many countries will postpone plans to shift from fossil fuels into cleaner renewable energy.
The link between investment, development and the environment is now a driving theme – not least at the ongoing COP28 global climate conference. But trillions of dollars are needed to meet climate and development goals and just a small part of that money is now flowing.
So how can we step up the investment we need for a sustainable future? Listen in to UNCTAD’s Anthony Miller and Joseph Clements to find out.
