Podcast looks at climate change’s effect on the poor
For the final episode of “Unfold,” Season 2, podcast host Amy Quinton travels to Kenya to learn more about how climate change and poverty intersect. UC Davis agricultural economists are researching the pairing of two intervention programs, including a type of climate insurance policy, to keep these vulnerable populations from falling so deep into poverty that they have no way to recover.
Guests are Michael Carter, professor of agricultural and resource economics, and director of the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Markets, Risk and Resilience at UC Davis, with research in Kenya funded by USAID; Tom Lenaruti, project coordinator, BOMA Project; and Nathan Jensen, an economist at the International Livestock Research Institute.
In season 2, “Unfold” explores the solutions to and complexities of climate change. It is available free, on demand at Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon’s Tunein, Stitcher, Pandora and Spotify.
