Climate Adaptation and the Cost of Inaction

How well will the world adapt to increasingly frequent extreme climate events? The answer depends on your leadership approach. To date, most government and business leaders have been focusing exclusively on climate mitigation, often at the expense of climate adaptation.

In this course, join Charmian Caines, a managing director and senior partner at BCG, as she makes a case for why governments and businesses can—and must—focus closely on doing both. Charmian shows you how to build scenarios assessing the economic, social, and natural damage of rising temperatures and develop financial and operational plans to combat rising sea levels, raging fires, and other extreme weather events.
