SetWidth290-EP_Book_006_Prev_040My newest publication in “Governance, Natural Resources, and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding” launches tomorrow in Washington D.C. The event is hosted by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). Thanks to Carl Bruch and everyone else who made this publication possible.

I wrote on the following topic, “Environmental Governance and Peacebuilding in Post-conflict Central America: Lessons from the Central American Commission for Environment and Development” with Marco Antonio González Pastora, Mauricio Castro-Salazar, Carlos Manuel Rodriguez. Mr. Rodriguez is the Vice President for Global Policy at Conservation International and Mr.González Pastora and Mr. Castro-Salazar formerly served as leaders of the Executive Secretariat for the Central Commission on Environment and Development.

The forward to this volume was written by Costa Rica’s former President, Óscar Arias Sánchez and focuses on negotiating peace agreements, implementing humanitarian assistance, and developing legal frameworks relevant to post-conflict natural resource management. The core question for all contributing authors was: What is good governance? Contributing authors responded by assessing how governance can best address the cultural, social, economic, and political dimensions of post-conflict environments.

The event is between 12pm to 2pm on Tuesday, May 3 in ELI’s offices in Washington, DC (1730 M Street NW, Suite 700). There will also be a discussion on the Livelihoods volume as a companion to the April 2015 digital launch.
