What is the impact of the Covid crisis on efforts to address climate change? How is the EU partnering with other international actors to fight climate change?

Join Jason Bordoff (SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia), Alex Halliday (Earth Institute, Columbia), Enrico Letta (PSIA), and Laurence Tubiana (European Climate Foundation), in a debate moderated by Adam Tooze (European Institute, Columbia).
