Dr. Richard Ponzio, Director of the Just Security 2020 Program at the Stimson Center, joined the Planetary Podcast team to discuss the UN’s role in addressing the climate crisis. The interview is part of Common Home Conversations: Beyond UN75, a podcast series featuring leading global experts on how the proposal of recognizing the existence of an Intangible Global Common without borders–the Earth System – can change our relationship with our planet.

“We need to look in an interdisciplinary way across a whole set of environmental concerns but then the connections with other major baskets of issues in the security, economic, human rights, even cultural domain. They all have an effect on whether or not we succeed in combatting the climate crisis, arguably the biggest challenge the UN has seen since its creation in 1945.”
