Sound management of natural resources is integral to a country’s development, resilience, and self-reliance. By promoting development that benefits both nature and people, biodiversity conservation activities can strengthen development impact and the capacity of countries to manage their natural resources, improving their self-reliance.
 
For the past five years, USAID’s Biodiversity Results and Integrated Development Gains Enhanced (BRIDGE) Project has supported the second goal of USAID’s Biodiversity Policy, to “integrate biodiversity as an essential component of human development.” BRIDGE collaborates with USAID missions and regional and technical bureaus to identify and promote integrated programming approaches and contribute to the evidence base for integration.

Please join the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change & Security Program, in partnership with USAID’s BRIDGE project, for the third panel in a three-part virtual series and hear from researchers and practitioners on lessons learned and entry points for action in the integration of biodiversity conservation, governance, public health, and food security.

Moderated by Tony Pryor, Senior Programming Advisor, Bureau for Policy, Planning, and Learning, U.S. Agency for International Development with an introduction by Francesca Gino, Tandon Family Professor, Business Administration; Unit Head, Negotiation, Organizations & Markets, Harvard Business School.

Panel Speakers:

  • Francesca Gino, Tandon Family Professor, Business Administration; Unit Head, Negotiation, Organizations & Markets, Harvard Business School
  • Josh Goldstein, Bridge Collaborative Director, The Nature Conservancy
  • James Watson, Development Diplomat in Residence, South Region, U.S. Agency for International Development
