Ben @ SEV Conference – ‘Climate Change: Global Crisis and International Cooperation

Climate change is a complex global problem with non-linear causes and geographically diffuse ecological, political and economic impacts. In this presentation to the 2017 Social Education Victoria VCE Teachers’ Conference, Dr Benjamin Habib explores the causes of climate change, the key actors in international climate politics, and the international mechanisms for cooperating to address greenhouse gas mitigation and climate adaptation. The presentation concludes by assessing the state of international climate politics in the new era of US President Donald Trump.

Thank you to the attendees at my presentation for your insightful questions and stimulating discussion, and to Social Education Victoria for the invitation to present.
