Over three episodes, WWF-Australia's Conservation Director Dr Gilly Llewellyn speaks with business, government and community experts to explore how climate change impacts are threatening Southeast Asia and the Pacific region. Importantly, the podcasts examine what role Australia can play in building resilience, ensuring economic stability and creating sustainable growth opportunities in the region.

Episodes

#1 A window into the future of climate change impacts in the Asia-Pacific  

Episode one features villagers from the Solomon Islands who are experiencing the impacts of climate change first-hand. Scientists also share their perspective, we hear from organisations on the ground who are looking for solutions, and learn of the important support role that Australia can play to assist our most vulnerable neighbours.

#2  Financing solutions: The role of Australian private and public sectors  

In episode two, government and finance experts speak about Australia’s role in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, and what climate change impacts to the region mean for Australian businesses. We learn how the Green Climate Fund will direct finance into climate change projects in developing countries, other ways that climate finance can be delivered, and discuss what’s needed to encourage more Australian private sector investment in this area.

#3 Partnerships for change: unique approaches from Australian businesses, government and NGOs  

In this final episode you can hear what kind of projects are out there for the private sector to get involved in and which Australian businesses are already leading the way. This episode also showcases a new initiative started by a blend of organisations, including the Department of Foreign Affairs, WWF, Oxfam and the Australian Council for International Development, that are facilitating Australian corporate support for vulnerable countries.
