Lessons for Addressing Climate Change from the COVID-19 Pandemic

Lessons for Addressing Climate Change from the COVID-19 Pandemic Online

Speaker: Alice Hill, Council on Foreign Relations

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a crisis unlike any other in living memory. It has also exposed the consequences of failing to prepare for catastrophic risk on a global scale. Both pandemics and climate change act as threat multipliers that amplify risks to global political stability, economic security and social welfare, while generating profound uncertainty around when and how they will occur. In this webinar, Alice Hill of the Council on Foreign Relations will explore the vast similarities between climate change and pandemics, and reveal how the world’s response to COVID-19 offers critical insights into how countries and communities can prepare for the worsening impacts of climate change.

This webinar will be recorded! When you sign up on Zoom, you'll be able to join live and you'll receive an email with a link to the recording as son as it's ready.
