Giving Compass’ Take:
• Megan Rowling reports that power-players Bill Gates, Ban Ki-moon, and Kristalina Georgieva will be leading the Global Commission on Adaptation working to bring stakeholders to the table to find climate change solutions.
• How can partnerships help to strengthen the commission?
A high-powered commission set to launch next month aims to strengthen funding and practical solutions for people and economies coping with climate change.
The body will be led by former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, philanthropist Bill Gates and World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva for its two-year term.
Ban told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that adapting to intensifying heatwaves, droughts, floods, and storms would be “much more important” in the coming decades.
The Global Commission on Adaptation will unite scientists, economists, city-dwellers, farmers, mayors, and company CEOs to discuss solutions to the climate pressures hiking human and economic losses around the world, Ban said.
