Recent months have seen the COVID-19 pandemic emerge as a global crisis requiring immediate, wide-spread and evidence-based action.

As countries have taken drastic measures to curb the spread of the virus, comparisons have arisen between the global response to COVID-19 and climate change. Despite their fundamental differences, they are both significant global challenges that require immediate action based upon scientific evidence.

So how and why have our responses differed, and what can we learn from the handling of COVID-19 to apply to our response to climate change?

Join us for this online event series, COVID-19 and Climate Change, to discuss these questions and more with leading researchers in the area.

In this event, international relations experts Hon. Prof Howard Bamsey and Prof Meg Keen, will discuss learnings from and implications of COVID-19 for global climate negotiations, and climate action and responses in the Pacific.

These events will be recorded. The recording will be made available after the event through the ANU Climate Change Institute YouTube channel.
