Our changing climate poses great challenges for humanity around the world: extreme weather events, sea level rise, flooding, drought, wildfires and more. How are countries in areas most affected by climate change responding to these and other challenges?

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, this special live webinar will feature Fellows in Cornell’s Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, sharing stories of the choices they face in their home countries and the actions they are taking in response to this global crisis. 

Presented in partnership with the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program and the CALS Department of Global Development.
