Felix Dodds, former executive director of the Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future, will focus on the difficulty of bringing water to the forefront of global negotiations on climate change, and the role that water plays throughout the process of migration and adaptation. Dodds will also discuss the increasing challenges to water availability in the future.

Dodds has written and edited numerous books on sustainability. His most recent book, Only One Earth – The Long Road Via Rio to Sustainable Development, was co-written with Michael Strauss and Maurice Strong, a pioneer in environmental advocacy and sustainable development. The book addresses the achievements and roadblocks that have occurred since the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden forty years ago.

This event is a part of the Water in our World Speaker Series.
