A Conversation on Climate Diplomacy and Energy Transformation

Speaker

Joel Jaeger, World Resources Institute

Join Duke's Rethinking Diplomacy Program for a webinar on Tuesday, April 25 from 12 noon to 1pm ET, with Joel Jaeger, Senior Research Associate at World Resources Institute, in conversation with the Duke Rethinking Diplomacy team, Duke experts and students. Protecting Earth's environment and building a prosperous, but more sustainable economy has become a priority for most countries in the world. Private enterprises are innovating rapidly, and with governments committing to greener economies, the direction of the debate over climate change is evolving. We hear often that the green energy transition has enormous and growing potential to address environmental risks while generating wealth in the U.S. and in the broader global economy. Are these claims realistic? How far along is the green energy transition? What examples of collaborations between private sector and national and international diplomacies can be discussed in preparation for COP 28 in Fall 2023? Audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions during the event. About the Speaker: Joel Jaeger is a Senior Research Associate at the World Resources Institute, focused on the economics of climate policy and green jobs. He leads the assessment of global climate progress for the Systems Change Lab platform and the State of Climate Action report series. Joel led WRI's global research on a green and inclusive recovery from COVID-19. He has also co-led the America's New Climate Economy project and an assessment of the job opportunities and challenges of electric vehicles in Michigan. About the Series: This webinar is part of a new RDP series on climate diplomacy organized in collaboration with Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability; The James E. Rogers Energy Access Project; and Sanford School of Public Policy. This event is aligned with the goals of The Duke Climate Commitment, which unites the university's education, research, operations and public service missions to address the climate crisis. The Rethinking Diplomacy Program is supported by a grant from The Josiah Charles Trent Memorial Foundation Endowment Fund.
