“Why Tackling Climate Change Matters for Development” Lecture by Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator and UNDG Chair Co-organized by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment & the Stanford Program in Human Biology Stanford, California, USA Thursday, 8 November 2012 Progress towards a new global climate agreement has been painfully slow. In my lecture today, I will talk about key issues at stake in the negotiations, and why concerted international action to tackle global warming matters so much to poor people and poor countries on the front lines of climate change.

I thank the World Affairs Council for inviting me to deliver this lecture as part of its ongoing mini-series: “Spotlight on Development Challenges”. As Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, I find the topic of this lecture series and the Council’s interest in what the world might look like in 2050 particularly relevant to our work to help address one of humanity’s most pressing challenges: how to lift human development while staying within planetary boundaries.

Prime Minister Fayyad, Ministers, Chairman of Padico, Executive Director of Jedico, Cyril Representative of the Women Committee I take great pleasure to be here today not only because I represent UNDP on suchan occasion, but also as being a consumer and many times wondering why is it not possible to get more Palestinian products and to what extent we can contribute to that because building a state is not only about building government institutions and capacities. It is also about creating the environment for a productive economy.
