It took a global pandemic and stay-at-home orders for 1.5 billion people worldwide, but something is finally occurring to us: The future we thought we expected may not be the one we get.

Below is an answer from Kathy Baughman McLeod, the director and senior vice president of the Adrienne Arsht–Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic Council. She previously worked as the global environmental and social risk executive at Bank of America, managing director of climate risk and resilience at The Nature Conservancy, and the energy and climate commissioner of the state of Florida.
