"There are several weaknesses [in terms of climate change readiness], but once again I would like to emphasize that most of the weaknesses are not Korea-specific, they exist everywhere.
Rather, Korea needs to take it as […] a chance to take further leadership role by creating very good best practices.
And then showing that we can actually overcome all these weaknesses […] I’m sure that Korea can do it."
Korea and the World is a podcast that interviews academics, professionals and intellectuals living and working in South Korea on current political, economic and societal issues.
