At the Intersection of Climate and Poverty: Solutions for Planetary and Human Well-Being
September 12 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
Hosted by Global Allies Program: Partners Ending Poverty with RESULTS and RPCVs4 Environmental Action in partnership with Drawdown Lift, this webinar focuses on the intersection of climate solutions, human well-being, and poverty alleviation and examines how we can collectively boost both planetary and human health. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers for Environmental Action (RPCV4EA), RESULTS, and Project Drawdown will facilitate a presentation and panel discussion around challenges and opportunities working at the intersection of climate and poverty, solutions that can contribute to both, and current advocacy opportunities to advance action at this intersection.
Discussions will be informed by a new landmark report, “Climate–Poverty Connections: Opportunities for synergistic solutions at the intersection of planetary and human well-being,” published by Project Drawdown. The report provides decision-makers with concrete evidence of how climate solutions can also contribute to meeting human well-being needs and alleviating poverty in rural communities in Africa and South Asia.
