    Unlocking Cooperation: Climate Change and Human Mobility

    Unlocking Cooperation: Climate Change and Human Mobility

    On World Refugee Day, Carnegie Council hosted a critical discussion on enhancing multilateral cooperation at the intersection of climate change and human mobility, the second event in the Council’s “Unlocking Cooperation” series.
    As extreme weather events and rising sea levels increasingly threaten coastal and island populations, particularly Small Island Developing States (SIDS), the panel will explore the urgent need for innovative and inclusive policies, guided by ethical considerations, to address climate-induced displacement and migration.
    The discussion featured Ambassador Ali Naseer Mohamed, permanent representative of the Republic of Maldives to the UN, alongside experts from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the New York Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The conversation was moderated by University for Peace's Ramu Damodaran.

    From factories in Asia to farms in California and truck drivers in the Great Plains, this conversation delves into the fascinating innerworkings of America’s supply chain and why it’s in a constant state of dangerous vulnerability. How can paying more attention to how we get the things that we need protect the fate of our global fortunes?

Guests are great, you need a new interviewer

The experts interviewed are so interesting. Alex is not a talented interviewer. If he’s selecting the experts he’s doing a wonderful job, but he’s not great at conducting interviews and brings down the quality of the conversation.

Important conversations

As an outsider to the international relations and global ethics communities(Bartender by night, mathematician/physicist by day) this is an incredible source for staying informed and understanding how nations, states, parties and individual actors are shaping the world. Obviously this podcast is not all encompassing, and it shouldn’t be, but is does have broad reach and myriad guests discussing important issues that affect many different populations.

4CsnFun ,

A Very Important Source

Really very special as forums go; as with most forums of this ilk, some speakers are terribly boring; certain others, however, are pure gold! (Could be 5-star rather than 4 if more effort was made in the production/audio quality, which is sporadic at best)
