About the event

One week after the COP26 summit concludes, we take a look back and a look ahead and ask the question: Was COP26 a success from an Indo-Pacific perspective? Which commitments are key to the Indo-Pacific’s quest for net zero? And now that COP26 is over, what are the next most urgent actions which countries will need to take to fulfil those commitments?

In the fourth and final episode of the Climate Change in the Indo-Pacific series, we are joined by several international experts and analysts who will assess the outcomes of COP26 and the implications for the Indo-Pacific, taking mitigation, adaptation, finance and collaboration – the four declared goals of COP26 – as a basis for their discussion.

“Climate Change in the Indo-Pacific” is a four-part series by Asia Society Switzerland and Swiss Re Institute exploring the effects of climate change on the Indo-Pacific and the world.
