Pitch

The many of the goals of the new UN A2R initiative can be achieved through close cooperation between a proposed MIT Hybrid Group and the UN.


Description

Summary

This proposal attempts to coordinate the objectives and actions of the new  MIT Plan for Action on Climate Change with that of the new  Anticipate, Absorb, Reshape (A2R) program envisioned by the UN for the goal of addressing the needs for improving environmental governance of the great seas.  

This UN focused proposal will expand upon the Alumni/SDM/VMS/CoLab Hybrid Initiative: Alumni Mentors Fast Track CoLab Concepts proposal in a way which brings to the table relevant information found within the comprehensive analysis on the important subject set of subjects evaluated in the publication Environmental Governance of the Great Seas: Law and Effect (DiMento and Bateman 2012)
