About the E-Symposium:
The spread and growth of industrialization across the world over the past seven decades have led to rapid climate changes and unprecedented warming of the planet’s surface. According to the latest UN reports, carbon emissions in the air have increased, world temperatures have risen above normal levels, arctic ice has reached its lowest ever level, sea level has risen at a record pace, and global ocean temperatures have increased. These sweeping climate changes have had many effects on global economic growth and economic relations between countries and regions of the world.
The core question this symposium will try to answer is about the potential effects of climate changes on global economic growth and its sustainability in the future. Given the high costs of curbing the economic activities causing climate changes, many local policies have been developed and various regional and global measures have been taken to combat these changes.
With the global economy still grappling with the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the current global state of affairs has magnified the challenges facing global economic growth generators and weakened the policies and measure intended to combat climate changes.
This proposed symposium will be an ideal platform to examine the efficacy of such policies and measures, whether in combating climate changes or in supporting sustainable global economic growth.
