New podcast episode: How is climate change affecting businesses in Africa and Asia?

The climate emergency is having a significant impact on communities all around the world, especially those living in Africa and Asia. A recent report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said that 40 per cent of the world’s population is now ‘highly vulnerable’ and predicts that future climate risks are even more severe than previously thought.

While these statistics paint a stark picture of the severity of the crisis, there are opportunities that come from a green economic transformation. From clean energy and mobility solutions, to green buildings and new adaptation and resilience technologies, there is huge potential to address the climate crisis in a way that delivers prosperity and supports a just transition to a new, green economy.

In this podcast episode, we discuss the impact the climate crisis is having on firms operating in Africa and Asia, how they are responding and what support they need from investors. It builds on the findings from our recent Emerging Economies Climate Report 2022.
