“The ultimate goal of Mistra Geopolitics is to enhance foresight capacity for sustainable development efforts in a world formed by multiple transformative processes – global environmental change, new technologies, and political-economic shifts.
The geopolitics emerging out of COVID-19 may well be a defining, historic moment for sustainable development policy. The pandemic could be tipping the scales of the Paris Agreement. We may see a turn toward more isolationism and pollution-intensive economic recovery efforts. However, the COVID-19 pandemic may also spur geopolitics of generosity. It may offer a timely opportunity to shift towards greener, healthier and more resilient societies.
Mistra Geopolitics and its many partners are well positioned to contribute to the task of navigating the geopolitical landscape in the aftermath of COVID-19. As the contents of this report amply illustrate, Mistra Geopolitics’ analyses have never been more timely and important.”
