Webinar: Build Back Better: How to Prepare for the Coming Climate Disruption
Authors Leonardo Martinez-Diaz and Alice Hill outline lessons from the current pandemic can apply to climate resilience and provide insights about how to shift to a more sustainable and equitable model after COVID-19.
In 2019, Leonardo Martinez-Diaz and Alice Hill co-authored Building a Resilient Tomorrow: How to Prepare for the Coming Climate Disruption. In 2020, the biggest economic and social disruption in generations struck, with COVID-19 laying low the global economy and taking lives worldwide.
In this webinar, Martinez-Diaz and Hill revisit their work in the context of this massive shock. They discuss how COVID-19 and climate change are alike and how they differ, outlining lessons for climate resilience from COVID-19 and laying the groundwork for how political and financial institutions can be better prepared the next time around.
