In the most recent episode of the Global Energy Policy podcast, our host, Bill Loveless, interviews US EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. Their discussion touches on a wide range of issues including the outlook for the Paris climate talks, the EPA’s clean power plan, and the broader relationship between the Obama Administration’s energy and environmental goals.

Rising debt levels and the ravages wrought by climate change present acute threats to achieving sustainable development goals in emerging market and developing economies.
As the world races to transition to cleaner energy sources, there exists a substantial gap between the financing required for this transition and the actual investments being made.
