Calendar » Upcoming GEF Webinar: The Journey of the Global Environment Facility
|Webinar: Thursday, July 9, 2020|
9 am Washington D.C. (EDT)
We are living beyond the carrying capacity of our planet, putting human systems and natural systems on a collision course: COVID-19 is a manifestation of this fact.
The fundamental cure and prevention for this will be to change how we live, eat, move, produce and consume. How can we protect nature and combat climate change while rebuilding our economies?
Moderated by WRI President and CEO, Andrew Steer, this event will look back over the last eight years of Naoko Ishii’s leadership as GEF CEO and Chairperson. With incoming CEO Carlos Manuel Rodriguez, it will also look forward towards the next chapter in the GEF’s journey to deliver transformational change and protect our common home.
The event will be opened by GEF STAP Chair, Rosina Bierbaum. It will also include a conversation between the two GEF CEOs, and an audience Q&A.
