Podcast: Climate Disasters and Inequality

Climate Disasters and Inequality

Earlier this month, climigration issues were front and center in an episode of the ClimateX podcast series, Climate Conversations, sponsored by the MIT Center for Digital Learning.

This week, we’re discussing the human response to extreme weather and climate change, with Patrick Field, Managing Director at the Consensus Building Institute.

Pat explains his role in intricate climate change negotiations, and how governments fund and adapt to climate challenges in coastal and island locations.

Additionally, Pat explores the complex relationship between people and place, considering the role [of] market-based solutions in climate adaptation in the wake of natural disasters.
