Food, water and energy for all

This week on Policy Forum Pod, Professor of Economics and Convenor of the Water Justice Hub Quentin Grafton joins us to discuss the environmental challenges and policy opportunities to ensure food, water and energy for all. 


How does climate change impact our relationship to food, water and energy? How can truth-telling support a more equitable and sustainable approach to managing resources? And how do we need to think about global governance to ensure food, water and energy for all? On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, Professor of Economics at the Crawford School of Public Policy, Quentin Grafton joins Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter to discuss the current ‘triple threat’ and options for policymakers in Australia.
