Johan Rockström is a Swedish professor and joint director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany. He attended the Bilderberg for the first time in 2019.
After 12 years as director of Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC), he became the 2018 joint director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), with PIK's current deputy director Professor Ottmar Edenhofer. Rockström and Edenhofer replace PIK director Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. He is a trustee of the climate change think tank Cool Earth.
Planetary Emergency Action Plan
In 2019, Rockström co-wrote the Planetary Emergency Action Plan for the Club of Rome, making the case for declaring a Planetary Emergency and providing a set of key policy levers addressing the cross-cutting challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and human health and well-being. The plan provided "a new compass for nations and injects the essential urgency into decision-making," predicting that 2020 is a “Super Year” for international policy action...."2020 will mark the beginning of the decade to scale action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. This decade must be a turning point, the moment when the world bends the curve, averts the impending disaster and opts instead to embark on the fastest economic transformation in our history."
It is likely that the presentation of this action plan was the reason he was chosen as speaker at the 2019 Bilderberg.
No more local control over water
Rockström was co-chair of the Global Commission on the Economics of Water, and a lead author of the 2023 report Turning the Tide . The report calls for a removal of local control over water, and instead introducing "global governance", where water prices will be "properly" set, in collaboration with private corporations.
The report sets out seven key recommendations, including reshaping the global governance of water resources, scaling up investment in water management through public-private partnerships, pricing water "properly" and establishing "just water partnerships" to raise finance for water projects in developing and middle-income countries. "There will be no agricultural revolution unless we fix water," stated Rockström.
