Climate and development: A tale of two crises

14 March 2019 17:00–18:30

The project of development is very much implicated in the production of climate change, as well as how it has been managed to date. But can the development sector also help to bring about the sorts of transformations now required to prevent climate chaos?

This lecture looks at the intertwined histories of development and climate change and argues that only a very different approach to development can help to address the climate crisis we currently face.

This lecture is part of the Sussex Development Lecture series: Achieving the SDGs: Synergies and Tensions.
