Recent months have seen the COVID-19 pandemic emerge as a global crisis requiring immediate, wide-spread and evidence-based action. As countries have taken drastic measures to curb the spread of the virus, comparisons have arisen between the global response to COVID-19 and climate change.

A critique of the parallels and disconnects between our understanding and responses to COVID-19 and climate change, featuring leading climate scientist, Prof Mark Howden. Mark will frame the series and delve into what the pandemic and responses to it have revealed about the relationships between science, politics and policy and how this may - or may not - inform new approaches for dealing with climate change.
