What Role for Turkey in European Energy Security Following the Russian Invasion of Ukraine?
The Turkish currency has been in freefall, prices in Turkey are going through the roof — with valuations fluctuating dramatically. This is not just an economic problem, but a major political and geopolitical one, too. Kadri Tastan and Wolfango Piccoli are discussing the economic and political impact. Host: William Glucroft
After years of refusal, President Erdoğan recently declared that Ankara will finally ratify the Paris Agreement. Kadri Tastan explains the reasons behind this resistance and why ratification alone will not be enough to actively engage Turkey in the fight against climate change.
Turkey’s recent climate policy shift represents the beginning of a long transformation required to create a carbon neutral economy.
