Hosted by the Korea Green Growth Trust Fund (KGGTF)
According to World Bank research, climate change could drive 216 million people to migrate within their own countries by 2050, with hotspots of internal migration emerging as soon as 2030, spreading and intensifying thereafter.
In this webinar, IFC will present two effective tools for measuring climate change mitigation and adaptation in the construction sector: Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) and Building Resilience Index (BRI). Three presenters-- Ommid Saberi, Michelle Marie Farrell, and Guido Licciardi-- will reflect on experiences and share lessons learned on resource efficiency and resilience.
Jong-sung Lee, Senior Research Fellow, Land & Housing Research Institute, Korea, will present on green certification and green housing policy cases in Korea, and Dao Harrison, Senior Housing Specialist, World Bank, will share ongoing work with the Indonesia green building certification and the Mongolia Green building Council rating system.
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.
