The State of Climate Adaptation 2022 with Judge Alice Hill

In episode 172, Judge Alice Hill from the Council on Foreign Relations returns to the podcast! Alice discusses the recent floods in Pakistan and how the aftermath could be a national security threat. We also discuss Puerto Rico and Hurricane Irma and the challenges of getting on the ground resilience funding on the island. Alice and I discuss how bureaucracies can have difficulty supporting adaptation planning and funding and why a National Adaptation Plan would help with adaptation coordination. Alice also shares the lack of basic climate understanding among corporate leaders and how that inhibits making resilience a priority in the private sector. We also dig into the recommendations of the recently released GAO report, Climate Change: Enhancing Federal Resilience. Always great to catch up with Alice Hill!

Topics covered:

  • The flooding in Pakistan and the National Security Implications of the aftermath.
  • Hurricane Fiona and Puerto Rico.
  • The challenges for FEMA to distribute funding.
  • Bureaucratic hurdles to effective climate adaptation.
  • Why a National Adaptation Plan is absolutely needed.
  • The Government Accountability Office report on Climate Resilience
  • The controversy at the World Bank.
  • The systematic lack of climate change knowledge in corporate leadership.
