As 2023 begins the world is beset by crises driven by conflict, climate change and the nexus of the two. But some places are expected to be hit harder than others as the year unfolds and this conversation David Miliband offers listeners key insights into where humanitarian needs are expected to be most acute in 2023.
David Miliband is the President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, which has released a watchlist of the top global crises it foresees this year.
We kick off with a brief discussion about the methodology of creating a crisis watchlist like this before having a extended discussion about several of his top crises of concern — as well as solutions to confront humanitarian crises across the world.
