Confronting Climate Change: A Faculty Roundtable

The global community is focusing increased attention on climate change and its implications not only for the environment, but also for economic and social development, governance, and security. Following World Bank Group President Jim Kim's Global Futures lecture, a panel of faculty climate experts joined Vice President for Global Engagement Thomas Banchoff and Global Futures Fellow Tasmia Rahman to address the importance of climate change for the policy community and for interdisciplinary research and teaching at Georgetown.

The discussion was sponsored by the Global Futures Initiative, the Georgetown Environment Initiative, and the MSFS program within the School of Foreign Service.
