The Center for Climate and Security
Published on Dec 31, 2018
In this episode, host Dr. Sweta Chakraborty talks to the CEOs of The Council on Strategic Risks and Co-Founders of the Center for Climate and Security: Francesco Femia and Caitlin Werrell. Sweta asks Caitlin and Frank what inspired them to launch their institute, and the answer is eye opening! They discuss a future where stresses on natural resources have the potential to influence geopolitics and increase the likelihood of mass atrocities against ethnic minorities and other vulnerable groups, as has happened in the past. They also discuss a “Responsibility to Prepare,” driven by a combination of unprecedented risks and unprecedented foresight – a core principle underpinning the Council’s work.
