The Policymaker Gap

Fast & Fair – The Climate Transition, with DLA Piper – Episode 4

To stay on track for 1.5 degrees warming, we need more ambitious policies, implemented much more quickly. In this episode, Paul talks to Apolitical co-founder and CEO, Robyn Scott; Climate Envoy for the Netherlands, H.R.H. Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme; and Former Minister for the Environment in Denmark, Ida Auken about the role of policy in a just transition. They discuss why governments need to adapt their strategies for urgent climate mitigation, the unique challenges that policy makers face across the globe, and how we can ensure that bold new policies are implemented effectively.

This episode is produced in collaboration with DLA Piper, and recorded at The Conduit Studio at COP26, as part of a series exploring the role of the law in responding to climate change.
