Catherine Potvin: Halting Deforestation - One Piece of the Climate Mitigation Puzzle [Public Lecture]
McGill University Biology Professor Catherine Potvin, a renowned expert on climate change and tropical-forest ecology, will share insights from her research.
For the past two decades, Prof. Potvin and her students have collaborated closely with indigenous communities in Panama, sharing knowledge and working with them to improve their livelihoods -- while avoiding deforestation. Now, as Quebec and Canada look increasingly to develop their own resource frontiers, Prof. Potvin is reaching beyond the classroom to promote informed public discussion of the environmental consequences of resource exploitation.
