Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme, Climate Envoy of the Netherlands, talks about the current state of the climate negotiations and the importance of listening, bridging divides and collaboration.
He reflects on the impact of the war in Ukraine and the human dimension of the climate crisis.
Prince Jaime's experience as a diplomat ranges from conflict management and posts in Iraq and Afganistan, to being the ambassador at the Vatican and working for the UN addressing the refugee crisis.
The podcast was recorded by Inner Green Deal co-founder Jeroen Janss in the run-up to COP27, but the the insights on the human dimension in climate negotiations are timeless.
