Toward a Global Pandemic Strategy

Pandemics cause panic, fear, and chaos. We have seen this pattern unfold repeatedly across the world with waves of the COVID-19 pandemic rippling through our populations.

A Common Quest to Save Our Planet's Climate

The West has been a leading pollutor of air and water for more than a quarter of a millennium. It was the U.K. that started the ball rolling with its industrial revolution of 1760, while other developed countries gradually followed suit by ruthlessly exploiting old Europe and their newly discovered continents’ resources.

Preserving Biodiversity, an Urgent Demanding Task

The chit chat at family dinner a couple of years ago turned political when we began discussing the best alternatives for my home country’s development. I argued, on a self-sufficient line, that protecting and managing our biodiversity instead of relying on fossil fuels — as we had for decades — was Colombia’s best possible strategy. To me, in view of our enviable competitive advantage of hosting around 10 percent of the world’s biodiversity, this made irrefutable sense.

BRI Nexus Promoting Multilateralism in a Post-Pandemic World

Born of centuries-long interactions between China and other civilizations along the ancient Silk Road, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) appears as the quintessential manifestation of multilateralism on the world stage since the Second World War which was, sad to say, one of quite a different kind.

The Leaders Summit on Climate: A Munich Moment or Global Action at Long Last?

On April 22 and 23, the Biden administration invited 40 world leaders to a virtual climate summit with the hope that other countries would follow the American example of announcing new and expanded commitments to achieving net global carbon neutrality by 2050.

My China: Democracy Is Not Coca-Cola

To friends of mine who have never been here, I always say that one does not go to China; one returns to China. I add that you either love or loathe China; there are no half measures.
