    Building back better: economic and financial decision-making after COVID-19

    Building back better: economic and financial decision-making after COVID-19

    COVID-19 has forced governments to take unprecedented steps to recover their economies. At the same time, some parts of the private sector warn they may have to park long-term climate ambitions just to keep their heads above water. This has potentially devastating consequences for sustainability efforts. So how can stimulus packages and investments promote short-term economic recovery without compromising long-term decarbonization and sustainability goals?
    In this episode, Beatrice Crona, deputy science director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre and executive director of the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere programme at The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, talks to Maria Håkansson, CEO of Swedfund, the Swedish Government's Development Finance Institution and Therese Lindahl, director of the Behavior, Economics and Nature Programme at the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics.

    Social resilience during a crisis

    Social resilience during a crisis

    COVID-19 is a devastating example of a crisis which ripples through regions and countries, affecting pretty much all aspects of our lives. Although impacts of the pandemic have hit some communities harder than others, especially in the global south, we are seeing signs of resilience emerging from many affected communities. This episode takes a closer look at some of these communities and how they have responded to this crisis. What can we learn from them and how can we build social resilience for similar events in the future?
    Albert Norström from Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Global Resilience Partnership unpacks this question with colleague Cibele Queiroz and Rafael Calderon-Contreras from the Metropolitan Autonomous University in Mexico.

    While all eyes are on COVID-19, the Amazon forest is burning

    While all eyes are on COVID-19, the Amazon forest is burning

    The corona virus has been described as the biggest challenge the world has faced since World War II. Yet while all eyes are on this devastating pandemic, the Amazon forest is burning to the point of becoming a planetary emergency. This episode looks at deforestation and the looming risk of large-scale destruction in the Amazon and elsewhere – something we know is also linked to the spread of infectious disease from animals to humans. How worried should we be? And what can we do about it?
    In this episode, Fredrik Moberg unpacks these questions with Ana Paula Aguiar from the Brazilian Institute for Space Research and David Armstrong McKay from Stockholm Resilience Centre.

    Misinformation, disinformation and sense making in crisis

    Misinformation, disinformation and sense making in crisis

    Digital technologies have created an information deluge. It is impossible to keep up with the flood. But digital technologies have also changed the flow of information in the world; the old gatekeepers like the media are now bypassed. What does this mean during a crisis when we need to make rapid decisions under uncertainty and we need to act collectively? 
    In this episode Owen Gaffney speaks to Kate Starbird, an associate professor at the University of Washington and expert on the use of communications technologies in times crisis. Owen also talks to Victor Galaz, associate professor and deputy director of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University who studies the spread of disinformation online.
