The risks from climate change are becoming visible. Wildfires, storms, floods and weather extremes are exacerbated by the warming planet and putting more people and assets in harm's way. That's because we live, build and work in the areas most at risk: cities and towns along the coast, near rivers, forests or wildland.
Climate change could also become a permanent drag on our economy. If we don't mitigate the risks and drastically reduce carbon emissions with a goal of net zero, the global economy will likely be smaller by mid-century after large income and productivity losses.
The stakes are high and rising rapidly. But we can still turn things around if we act now, act boldly and act together – across industries and as public and private partners.
What will it take to reach net zero and strengthen our climate resilience?
