Global Governance Podcast

Lisa Palmer on Our Hot and Hungry Planet

Jan. 1, 2023

In her book Hot, Hungry Planet: The Fight to Stop a Global Food Crisis in the Face of Climate Change, Lisa Palmer analyzed the challenges we face in global food security as they relate to climate change. Over the next decade we are likely to see continued population growth, an acceleration in global warming, the intensification of a water crisis, and an increase in the incidence of civil unrest associated with these trends. What are some of tools at our disposal to increase the resilience of our interconnected food systems? This podcast is an insightful look at the role of technology, a greater focus on women and girls’ education that is relevant to their local needs, and the need for greater international cooperation for a problem that will be disruptive everywhere, with particularly dire implications for the developing world.
