"National & International Environmental Policies: What Works and What's Broken?" Fresh from four years in Washington, DC, at the helm of NOAA, Dr. Lubchenco will share tales and reflections about her experiences with federal environmental policy, including a focus on climate, oceans, fisheries, habitat restoration, oil spills and endangered species. She will discuss national and international efforts to infuse ecological science into policy and management. And address questions such as: How does Washington really work? How is science used and perceived in DC? What are the roles of academic, government, industry and NGO scientists in decision-making?
