Episode #87 The Cost of Doing Nothing: Climate and Conflict with Julie Arrighi

On this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we are joined by Julie Arrighi, the Urban Manager and ICRC Partnership Lead at the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre. This year, the ICRC, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) are hosting a global policy roundtable series on “Climate Risk, Conflict, and Resilience,” with the objectives of better understanding the intersection of climate and conflict risk, examining the implications for humanitarian and development responses, and elevating the voices of people affected by the “double vulnerability” of climate and conflict risk. Join us as we discuss the main themes and takeaways from the roundtable series, the work of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre, and the climate-related happenings at the 2019 UN General Assembly week. Hosted by Austin Shangraw.
