A Sustainable Future: Linking International Development and Conservation

Please join us for A Sustainable Future: Linking International Development and Conservation on Tuesday, September 26 at the Central Park Zoo. The evening will begin at 5:30 pm with a reception and panel discussion by expert panelists followed by a keynote dinner with Achim Steiner, Administrator of UNDP, at 7:30 pm.

This is an event for the Science for Nature and People Partnership (SNAPP), which envisions a world where protecting and promoting nature works in concert with sustainable development and improving human well-being. This partnership is led by The Nature Conservancy, the Wildlife Conservation Society, and the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS) at University of California, Santa Barbara. SNAPP mobilizes rapid, cost-effective, multi-disciplinary teams of global experts to find solutions to the world’s most pressing conservation challenges related to food and water security, resilient responses to climate change, and valuing the services that nature provides to people.

As nations gather in New York for the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly from September 12-25, we invite you to learn how the SNAP Partnership is facilitating the science and conservation community in working closely with economic and policy experts to lay the groundwork for a sustainable future.
