Perspectives in Global Development: Spring 2023 Seminar Series

Many reports have been published over the last four years on the urgent need to reconfigure food systems for resilience, sustainability and equity in the face of climate change. But little information is available on the potential costs involved. One such report, based on extensive consultation and published in 2020, set out eleven actions identified as being required to accomplish this. Using existing literature, we estimated the annual cost of implementing these eleven actions to be USD 1.3 trillion. Half of this is...

Equine veterinary medicine presents many challenges because of the size and athleticism of our patients. Therefore, examination requires creative thinking in order to get the best diagnostic and prognostic information. Endoscopy allows us to view multiple regions of the horse and provides us an ‘up close’ look. The Cornell Hospital for Animals has recently re-invested in equipment that improves these abilities. Multiple examples will be shown of the utility of this technology.
