This week, The Bridge Tank gives its point of view on COP-21 and the resulting lessons to be learnt. As a preview for the Abu Dhabi “Sustainability Week”, it is vital to understand how environmental issues have managed to spark interest from emerging countries. Download for more information our Insight dedicated to the outcome of COP-21.
So COP-21 did not turn out to be a damp squib. But the Paris Agreement of 12 December 2015 was ultimately only the highly publicized side of a generalized, multi-stakeholder movement to align economic progress and the fight against climate change. At The Bridge Tank, we note an industrial turning point in which emerging actors not only have their full part to play, but where, in our view, they will also become key players, given the extent to which the relays for their economic growth offer opportunities for transition, along with the related co-innovations.
