The Weekly Tradecast

In our fifth episode of The Weekly Tradecast, we talk to economist and author Richard Kozul-Wright, UNCTAD's director of the globalization and development strategies division, about how we can reduce the negative effects of climate change.

Much of Europe has been seeing soaring temperatures and battling to control huge wildfires this summer. Scientists say the heatwave is consistent with the global impact of our changing environment. Hundreds of millions of people around the world -- many in developing countries -- are suffering as extreme weather destroys crops, threatens development and makes entire areas unliveable.

Tune in to hear Richard on why climate change is not going away and why we must support developing countries with adaptation and mitigation to stop it from getting worse.
