Watch this video to see a keynote interview with Suman Bery, chief economist for Shell International, from day two of VERGE Boston.

Bery heads up a team that manages the scenario mapping discipline at Shell, which models scenarios to enable emerging economies to grow while creating a more resilient society. Bery focuses on the food-energy-water stress nexus and the constraints brought about by climate change. Shell believes dealing with this stress nexus will govern a firm's license to operate in the world over the next 30 to 50 years.

Suman Bery will talk further about the stress nexus of food, energy, and water at Convergence Paris on June 26-27.
