Podcast: Tackling the Global Climate Crisis - Global Governance Dilemmas, Forest Protection and Indigenous People


The global climate crisis is becoming ever more pressing. At the same time, international political actors are seriously struggling to deal with this crisis.

Dr Markus Fraundorfer, Lecturer in Global Governance and CGD Affiliated Member, looks at the example of deforestation and forest protection to find answers to these questions in this podcast.
