Perspectives in Global Development: Fall 2023 Seminar Series
In an era marked by pressing ecological concerns and the pursuit of equitable human development, this seminar explores how nations in the Global South are navigating the complex terrain of environmental preservation while striving to uplift their populations. The seminar will feature a distinguished panel of Humphrey Fellows from Uganda, Turkey, Suriname, South Korea, and South Sudan. These Fellows bring a wealth of international perspectives and firsthand experiences to the discussion, enriching our understanding of the dynamic interplay between human development and environmental conservation across continents. Panelists will share the strategies employed by their respective nations to address multifaceted challenges, including biodiversity loss, climate change mitigation, responsible resource management, and the pursuit of social equity—all integral components of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The panel offers valuable insights for policymakers, researchers, and practitioners striving to strike a balance that secures a sustainable future for both people and the planet.
