October 29, 2021

16:00 (UTC+3) - 17:30 (UTC+3)


On 28 October 2021 UNU-WIDER organized an online panel discussion titled 'COP26: Are We Ready?'. A recording of the discussion has been made available on YouTube.

An international panel of experts specialising in mining, oil and gas discussed issues including:

  • What does climate policy imply for the global gas market, and gas producers among the developing countries?
  • What does the shift to renewable energy, battery storage, and electric vehicles imply for the producers of metals such as Zambia?
  • Can we avoid doing further environmental damage in the effort to increase the mining of minerals and metals critical to the technologies underpinning the Net Zero transition?


A recording of the expert discussion is available on YouTube: https://youtu.be/wSke874N_sA
