5:15 AM–6:45 AM ET

Watch the event that took place at COP26 in Glasgow, UK.

As climate change increasingly poses threats to the stability of our energy supply, building resilient energy systems on the national and international levels is of critical importance. While collaborative action is vital to addressing threats posed by climate change, many organizations and governments’ can enhance resilience planning in their energy policies to avoid significant risks to the energy sector.

This event, hosted jointly by the ICF Climate Center and the International Energy Agency in the Resilience Hub at the COP26 Pavilion, will discuss the threats faced by the energy sector in the face of climate change and how we can mainstream climate resilience into energy planning and policies on the national and international levels.
