Professor Bray invited to moderate panel at upcoming global climate negotiations in Cancun, Mexico

Professor David Barton Bray (on sabbatical leave 2010-2011) has been invited by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) of Bogor, Indonesia, to moderate a panel on Forest Day, a side event to the COP 16 global climate negotiations in Cancun, Mexico. Forest Day is one of the world's leading global platforms for anyone with an interest in forests and climate change to come together with others and exchange their views. Last year, nearly 1,500 people attended Forest Day 3 in Copenhagen, including world leaders, three Nobel Prize winners, top scientists, donors, global and regional media, policymakers, leaders of indigenous communities, and notably 250 climate negotiators. This year, they anticipate up to 2,000 participants. More information at http://www.forestsclimatechange.org/ForestDay-4.html
