Podcast: It's going to be an interesting 10 years – adaptation, climate change and the future of international development

September 21, 2021

The inconveniences of Covid-19 could pale in comparison to what climate change may have in store for us all. Rising temperatures and seas, burning forests and drying rivers aren't just likely – they're guaranteed according to the 2021 IPCC report. In this episode of the Global Development Primer podcast, Pact's David Bonnardeaux shares his thoughts about how to create positive environmental outcomes from community-based development projects. Host Robert Huish published an article earlier this year exploring how International Development Studies need a big re-think going forward. Huish and Bonnardeaux offer a conversation that treads on terrifying while searching for positive adaptation strategies.
