Conference on The Triple Crisis – Finance, Food and Climate Change

Project name/title
Conference on The Triple Crisis – Finance, Food and Climate Change
Year:
2010
Theme:
New Challenges in Development Economics
Abstract:
The institute's anniversary year takes place in the midst of immense instability in the global economy. A crisis which includes a simultaneous combination of global financial turmoil undermining the real economy, unchecked climate change with carbon emissions growing at a pace faster than foreseen just a few years ago, and hunger exacerbated by the huge run-up in global food prices interacting with the failure of the world to develop timely alternatives to its dependence on oil. The impact on poverty, inequality, social stability and peace are profound and dangerous.
