This past week, organized events were held across New York City for Climate Week and the United Nation’s Climate Action Summit. These events were designed to inspire business, government, and nonprofit leaders to accelerate the transition to a nature-positive future.
Our team at Ksapa based in NYC attended UNGA and “Climate Week” last week. We’re not on track meeting the Global Goals. But in the dangerous climate situation we find ourselves in, it’s important not to leave any option aside. There are options worth implementing to maximize carbon sequestration and protect nature. Let’s do it.
Ksapa is leading a working group alongside France Invest and 14 private equity companies. The aim is to collectively create a toolbox to ensure that human rights issues are properly taken into account in investment decisions.
A range of industrial projects can contribute to local development, decarbonization and inclusive growth. Their acceptability is often no less complicated than others. Here’s an operating brief.
If there is one report on climate change that you need to review, it is this one. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the synthesis report under its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) on 20 March 2023. The report summarises the state of knowledge of climate change, its widespread impacts and risks, and climate change mitigation and adaptation, based on the peer-reviewed scientific, technical and socio-economic literature since the publication of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) in 2014 and the 2018 IPPC report. The next one will be in 2030…
Let’s start the year 2023 with optimism; because 2022 has finally delivered its share of good surprises, and we should appreciate the glass half full rather than criticize the glass half empty.
The link between climate, development and infrastructure is unalterable and firmly anchored in the 2030 Global Goals Agenda. Factoring pertinent climate trajectories and embedding human rights remain critical challenges. Ksapa’s operational experience with various donors, project owners and project managers across a wide range of markets leads to several lessons shared in this article.
