This online event was part of a series hosted by the Conservation Finance Forum (with assistance from the Government Innovators Network), highlighting several topics of keen interest to the U.S. and international conservation communities. As always there was ample time for audience Q&A.
The panel included John Kostyack of the National Wildlife Federation, and Jad Daley of the Trust for Public Land. Kostyack and Daley are leaders in the effort to include adaptation measures into the pending Waxman-Markey legislation to address climate change. These adaptation measures would have a significant impact on land and biodiversity conservation efforts in the 21st century.
