No Time to Wait: Climate Change in the Indo-Pacific
A Joint Series by Asia Society Switzerland and Swiss Re Institute
The Indo-Pacific is the most populous region on the planet – and it is also the region which is most vulnerable to the impact of climate change. By 2050, many parts of Asia will see increasing average temperatures, heat waves, extreme precipitation and droughts. Governments, institutions, and individuals are taking action to mitigate the risks of climate change: new policies are being put in place, health care systems reformed, and innovative solutions to tackle the negative effects of climate change created, but a great deal remains to be done – and there is no time to wait.
In this four-part series, Asia Society Switzerland and Swiss Re Institute explore the impact of climate change in the Indo-Pacific region and shed light on policy responses, health care effects, and nature-based solutions in China, the Indian Subcontinent, and Oceania. The final episode assesses the outcomes of COP26, taking place from Oct 31 to Nov 12 in Glasgow, and implications for the Indo-Pacific.
All four episodes, with exception of episode 3, will be held as hybrid events, taking place in the beautiful auditorium at Swiss Re Next in Zurich as well as online via Microsoft Teams. Episode 3 will take place online only.
