Mapping Complexity to Future-Proof Global Real Estate and Climate Adaptation with Parag Khanna
There's a common denominator across globalization, macroeconomics, geopolitics, and climate–it's geography. Our geography is getting increasingly complex, and Parag Khanna is here to share with us the different driving factors that drive this complexity and how these affect businesses and economies around the globe.
Parag Khanna is the founder and CEO of Climate Alpha, an AI-powered analytics platform to forecast asset values and future-proof global real estate, and founder & managing partner at FutureMap, a data, and scenario-based strategic advisory firm.
In this episode, Parag shares his insights on why climate change has become paramount to him, believing that geography is the common denominator in all topics, including climate change. Parag discusses the need for individuals, investors, and governments to anticipate and plan for global population changes due to climate change. He touches upon the importance of mass migration in the future and Mexico's role as the world's second-largest repository of displaced people.
