Climate risks to worker health in commodity supply chains
29 Jul 21
New podcast: Epidemiologist Jason Glaser, CEO of La Isla Network, talks about the risks for any company with commodity supply chains around high temperatures and agricultural worker health. While these have been researched in tropical regions for some time, climate change impacts mean that labourers in more temperate zones are now at risk. There are some simple strategies to follow – but, as Glaser argues, significant collaboration is necessary, now.
And, forests expert Prof. Simon Lord and Innovation Forum’s Tobias Webb debate some of the challenges around reforestation and forest restoration.
