The surprising links between the coronavirus, climate change, and inclusive governance.
The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted numerous vulnerabilities in global systems for health care and governance. And while it has become common to say COVID-19 is a disease that knows no borders, the fact that it disproportionately impacts people along social divisions such as gender, race, and wealth underscores the importance of discussing more just and sustainable conditions.
The pandemic—and the speed at which it has circled the globe—serves to remind us just how interconnected the world has become. In that sense, it is also an omen for how climate change can impact the planet, and the exponential nature of the threats faced by humanity.
How can countries create more resilient and equitable systems—not just for this crisis, but for crises still to come? What lessons can we learn? And what tangible measures can we take?
Foreign Policy, in partnership with the Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University, convened a panel of leading global thinkers to answer those and other questions. Watch to learn about the transformative impact of inclusive governance, how to democratize our institutions, and how to build capacity for sustainable development.
