This new panel event series from Bright Blue is an opportunity to discuss and debate new ideas and policies to tackle the interrelated crises of climate change and biodiversity decline ahead of the two COPs in 2021: the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change COP26 in Glasgow and the UN Biodiversity Conference COP15 in China.

The key questions that this webinar panel will explore are:

  • How should UK aid prioritise projects that reduce climate and enhance the natural environment overseas?
  • How can Official Development Assistance (ODA) be better aligned with the UK’s priorities around climate and conservation?
  • Which UK ODA projects are successfully advancing climate and conservation policies?
  • Will projects that reduce impacts on climate and the natural environment also reduce poverty?

The key speakers are:

  • Harriett Baldwin MP, Former Minister for Africa and International Development
  • Neil Bird, Senior Research Fellow, Climate and Sustainability, ODI
  • Danny Sriskandarajah, CEO, Oxfam GB
  • Patrick Hall, Senior Researcher, Bright Blue (Chair)
