Robynne Anderson's Emerging Thoughts on Ag

Science and the Environment

We all live in it. We all interact with it. Whether it is a farmer in a field, or someone dealing with pollution in a city, or a fisher struggling in an ocean, the environment touches every person and every sector. So it is exciting to think about the upcoming United Nations Environment Assembly in May 23-27 in Nairobi. There are plenty of opportunities to participate, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in more information on the week’s activities.

One of them will be the first ever global Science-Policy Forum in Nairobi, 19-20 May 2016. UNEP has provided some details:

The Forum presents an excellent opportunity for the science community to engage with the policy-makers and have a constructive dialogue on the science and knowledge required to support informed decision-making and deliver on the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. A number of high-level and inspirational speakers will address various sessions of the Forum. The attached flyer provides more information about the Forum.

I would be grateful if you could distribute the flyer to your respective stakeholders and networks.
