About the talk
Five years on from the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change there have been important changes in the world which are likely to have a profound impact on our response to the two defining challenges of the century; overcoming poverty and managing climate change. Nick Stern will discuss how we can respond to these challenges in the context of a special but difficult decade in the global economy.
