In this episode of the Poverty Podcast, we speak to Dr. Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics, visiting scientist at the Potsdam Institute, and one of the lead authors of two recent World Bank reports on the impact of four degrees of climate change on the world’s poor.
If you enjoyed Episode 2 and would like to hear more from my conversation with Dr. Bill Hare, well, you’re in luck. In this second Extras episode of the Poverty Podcast, Bill and I discuss the likely impact of four degrees of climate change on the prevalence of disease in poor countries, and the impacts on human survival of biodiversity loss in forests and oceans.
Already listened to Episode 1, and eager for more? Great!
In our first ‘extras’ episode, you can hear more from my discussion with Alex Cobham, including Alex’s views on the need for a more decentralised approach to goal-setting for the successors to the Millennium Development Goals, and the Palma Ratio, a new measure of inequality he and Andy Sumner have developed.
In this first episode of the Poverty Podcast, we speak to Alex Cobham, a research fellow at the Center for Global Development, about the case for a post-2015 goal on income inequality; and to Katherine Reichel and Ian Madison, two graduate students who’ve produced a report for the NGO International Alert on the implications for poor people of the international scheme to reduce deforestation, REDD+.
