Ten years after the Stern Review on the economics of climate change: looking back, looking forward (Jubilee Development Lecture)

Lord Stern, IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government and Chair of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science

Date/Time: 2nd February 2017

Ten years since the launch of the Stern Review, which set out to examine the economic impacts of climate change, its key messages are still highly relevant, indeed even stronger. Global response has been slow but is picking up and agreements made in 2015 and 2016 provide hope for stronger action, which is now ever more pressing. The decisions made in the next two decades on how we build and design infrastructure, cities and technologies will shape the next century and beyond.
