Welcome back to The Climate and Security Podcast! In this special Episode 5 we get two for one!
In this episode, host Dr. Sweta Chakraborty talks to the CEOs of The Council on Strategic Risks and Co-Founders of the Center for Climate and Security: Francesco Femia and Caitlin Werrell. Sweta asks Caitlin and Frank what inspired them to launch their institute, and the answer is eye opening! They discuss a future where stresses on natural resources have the potential to influence geopolitics and increase the likelihood of mass atrocities against ethnic minorities and other vulnerable groups. They also discuss a “Responsibility to Prepare,” driven by a combination of unprecedented risks and unprecedented foresight – a core principle underpinning their work.
The Center for Climate and Security’s video podcast takes climate change out of its environmental box, and brings it to the big kid’s table of national and international security. Featuring a series of exclusive dialogues between host Dr. Sweta Chakraborty and leading security, military and foreign affairs experts, the podcast explores our responsibility to prepare for a rapidly-changing world.
