Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Climate Change and the Global South

Climate Change and the Global South

February 07, 2022 | 10:00 am to 11:00 am | Africa Program

About the Event

Climate change is an existential problem that threatens the globe.  The countries of the Global South are disproportionately affected but face challenges dealing with the effects of a changing climate. FPRI has assembled a panel of experts on climate science to explore how the changing climate affects the African continent, the Global South, and the rest of the world.

FPRI is happy to provide this event free of charge thanks to the generous support of our members, partners, and event attendees. If you are not currently a member, the suggested donation is $25.
