Join the Salata Institute’s Climate Action AcceleratorHarvard Chan C-CHANGE, and the FXB Center for Health & Human Rights for a conversation with Cassie Flynn, Global Director of Climate Change at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to hear insights from the front lines of implementing the Paris Agreement.

At the United Nations, Cassie has been at the forefront of climate action for the last 15 years. She advises prime ministers, presidents, heads of state, global leaders, and high-level coalitions on the climate crisis and was a key player in the historic Paris Agreement negotiations.

Ms. Flynn has led the Climate Promise that supported over 85% of developing countries to create and deliver their pledges under the Paris Agreement. Yet, the world is still falling short, and the next two years are the most critical. At this event, we’ll discuss what is working and what strategies can help nations more fully realize the Paris Agreement’s goals.
