Ted-Ed has created a fun and informative short video on how to eradicate a disease, looking at the experience of the smallpox program, which our Senior Advisor and former President, Larry Brilliant, was a key part of in the 1970s. It helps explain why other infectious diseases, like HIV, are trickier, and how close we are on polio.
In our work on water security, we’ve been supporting the World Resource Institute’s efforts to expand and enhance its Aqueduct tool, which measures and maps water risks around the world. They’ve just come out with a compelling global analysis of flood risk, using a flood analysis component of Aqueduct. Access a short BBC piece by clicking on the image below.
The most recent segment of the Reinventors Network series on Reinventing Nuclear Security focused on ways new players who don’t traditionally think of the nuclear security sphere can constructively engage in the space. We are supporting the series via our investment in N Square, a new initiative designed to help bring new ideas and new players to the nuclear security conversation. Below is a short video recap of the session. The next segment, on developing next-generation innovators to support nuclear security, takes place tomorrow, March 3, at 11:00 am PT.
