Asia will lose land as the planet warms, says IPCC's Ko Barrett
Last August, a landmark IPCC report underscored the urgency of the climate crisis — with big implications for Asia, the region most at risk.

Barrett spoke during the first of a two-part Sustainability Leaders Summit livestream conversation sponsored by Suntory. Watch here.
