Senior ECPA Fellows Jeff Soule
, Frank Lowenstein
and Janaki R.R. Alavalapati
will be serving as panelists for the Fulbright NEXUS Scholar Symposium
on Sept. 18 to 19.
It is a great honor for the three ECPA Fellows
and Partners of the Americas
to be a part of this event. Not only will they be sharing their knowledge on specific issues, but they will be fostering connections with scholars, something that Partners has always excelled at.
ECPA Fellow Dan Kammen
serves as the lead scholar for the Fulbright program. He has selected 20 grantees that have been working on new and interesting environmental projects throughout this year.
Their projects culminate with this Symposium where the ECPA Fellows will speak and share their knowledge with the class of nexus scholars. Together, the four ECPA Fellows will be representing Partners' ECPA program as they speak on their research at the Symposium. The three Fellows will each moderate a panel on their specific interests.
- Jeffrey Soule: Climate Change and Development Impacts on Ecosystems
- Frank Lowenstein: Strengthening the Adaptation Strategies of Vulnerable Populations
- Janaki R.R. Alavalapati: Sustainable Development Strategies and Conflicts
Other specialists in the environment field will be speaking as well. Panelists include members from the U.S. Department of State
, the Director of Environmental Policy Program at University of Maryland
and Carbon War Room
Stay tuned for a blog post on each of the panels after the Symposium.
