Innovation, Energy And Climate Change In The Developing World Panel Discussion
Humanity has never faced a problem like this before: a problem with no boundaries, caused by the very dynamics that have led to economic growth and human betterment. So it’s little wonder that as States deliberate the question of responsibility it is clear the divide between the developed world and the rest remains keenly felt. Who should take the lead? Why should responses be equal when little else is? From China and India to South Africa or Tuvalu, one country’s ‘innovation’ might just be the next’s undoing.
Kartikeya Sarabhai, Prasad Menon, Jon Barnett and Ian de Cruz take part in this panel discussion, addressing the human impacts of our changing world, and the role social justice must play in it.
Panel Member: Dr. Jon Barnett is a political geographer and Australian Research Council Fellow at Melbourne University.
Panel Member: Prasad Menon has been Managing Director of Tata Power, India’s largest privately owned power company since 2006.
