43 - Understanding the intrinsic value of our planet to fight climate change ft. Dr Richard Byron-Cox

October 9, 2020

Today on the podcast is Dr Richard Byron Cox, Head of the Capacity Development and Innovation Office at the Secretariat of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification.

We begin by discussing the common misconceptions around desertification and really digging into what it’s implications are on our planet. As Dr. Byron-Cox says there are no national boundaries when it comes to the environment, we’re all in this together. We discuss what sustainable development and combating climate change will require from people, governments and corporations.

Dr. Byron-Cox presents his thoughts and arguments in a refreshing manner that moves away from the industry jargon that typically surrounds the fight against desertification and climate change. His words will leave you with a lot to think about, and a desire to take action.
