Exploring Preconditions for Effective Global Responses to Climate Change
Apr 13, 2020
Speaker: Jeremy Webb, a Kiwi in the process of completing his PhD at University College London
When Jeremy started his research, he was looking for options that might help solve climate change. He quickly realised the problem wasn’t a lack of options and shifted focus to exploring who would implement those options and under what conditions. Jeremy has developed an insightful approach to framing scenarios in which the world succeeds or fails at addressing climate change and related impacts.
