Jennie Stephens Presenting a Webinar on Climate and Energy Resilience

Dr. Jennie Stephens, GRI's Director of Strategic Research Collaborations will present a webinar on Thursday, September 5th from 15:30 – 16:30 New Delhi IST | 6 AM – 7 AM EST.

This presentation is part of a series sponsored by the Urban Resilience Unit of GRRN partner organization, National Institute of Urban Affairs. As energy systems are undergoing a transformation from centralized fossil-fuel-based infrastructure to more efficient, renewable-based configurations they have the potential to provide benefits to vulnerable individuals and communities as well as reduce inequality and injustices. This offers opportunities to redistribute economic and political power while aiding climate resilience, however, these transitions could also perpetuate inequalities and vulnerabilities. This presentation will review the potential for both while strengthening energy and climate resilience.
