Global Coordination in an Age of Pandemics and Emerging Climate Technologies
Much like efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, combatting climate change requires cooperation on a global scale. And yet the history of international climate negotiations shows just how difficult that cooperation can be.
At the same time, new technologies to alter the climate are emerging, posing their own challenges to multilateralism. What, if anything, can we learn from the global response to the pandemic that might aid us in governing new, climate-altering technologies?
C2G senior strategy director Cynthia Scharf shared her knowledge on these issues in a digital conversation with Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal.
