There's No Planet B: Global Climate Governance

There's No Planet B: Global Climate Governance

In our new series, There's No Planet B, we want to share everything you need to know about the climate crisis. We previously touched on why we're in a climate crisis, and also the effects of the crisis. In this third episode, we want to explore climate governance - the processes involved in building global-scale climate solutions, and how these international policies are eventually created and supposedly executed. Yet despite having Protocols, Accords, COP's, Action Plans, Agreements etc. the dire warnings and scientific consensus have failed to enact much change for the survival of people and the planet. Why? We explore this and more with Dr Helena Varkkey, an Associate Professor from the Department of International and Strategic Studies at the University of Malaya, who is also part of the team behind Bite-Size Climate Action.
