Marking Earth Day, we bring in Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change joining us from Germany.
Executive Secretary Espinosa, welcome to the program.
According to the report on the State of the Global Climate 2020 released by the World Meteorological Organization, the six years since 2015 have been the warmest on record while 2011-2020 was the warmest decade on record.
What's your analysis of the current situation and the foreseeable future?
Tell us how the Covid pandemic affected the NDCs pledged under the Paris Agreement and climate action plans?
Could Covid-19 prove to be a valuable lesson and our chance to set the pathway to greener future?
You will be at the second virtual Exponential Climate action Summit later today. What are the biggest challenges in realizing zero emission by 2050 and are you optimistic that it can be achieved after all?
What are some ways the public can better engage themselves in tackling the climate crisis?
Several major climate related events will follow on Earth Day, including the Leaders’ Summit on Climate hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden. How do you expect the outcome of the talks?
Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of UNFCCCC thank you for your speaking with us tonight.
