There is clear consensus that for there to be any chance of reversing the climate crisis, we will need the coherent collaboration and leadership of the world’s major powers. It is also clear that there are hard security implications should a state fail or collapse due to climate induced pressures, as already seen in rising tensions and looming conflicts around the world. The technologies that can allow us to live with a much lower impact on our planet have existed for a long time, but what can we turn to or develop to help bring about the required changes in human behavior and consumption, and how can great powers around the world collaborate to create that change? Join the Atlantic Council’s GeoTech Center for an expert panel discussing these issues.
