To limit global temperature rise, conserve nature, and build a fairer economy that benefits everyone, we will need deep change across every aspect of our economies at a pace and scale we have not yet seen. Because our world is complex and interconnected — small changes in one system can have unforeseen consequences in others — spurring transformative action requires a systemic approach.
Watch this webinar from the World Resources Institute (WRI) to learn what you need to know about systems change. Systems Change Lab has identified more than 70 transformational shifts needed to protect both people and the planet, highlighting current action against climate, biodiversity and equity targets. Their recently launched data platform identifies which shifts are accelerating or heading in the wrong direction, as well as the key forces driving these changes.
During this event, the speakers introduce systems change and discuss how understanding the different components within systems, and how they interact, can help pinpoint critical leverage points for decision makers. Experts from Systems Change Lab provide snapshots of findings from five initial systems – power, transport, industry, finance and carbon removal – and demonstrate how the new platform can be used to identify actions that can accelerate change.
