Rural Investment: Building a Natural Climate Solutions Policy Agenda that Works for Rural America and the Climate
The Nicholas Institute is hosting a webinar to discuss a new report that outlines a natural climate solution policy agenda capable of earning necessary support from rural Americans while helping the United States reach its goals to address climate change.
Executive in Residence Robert Bonnie will be a panelist for "Managing Forests for Climate Mitigation - from Theory to Practice: An in-depth conversation on the practicalities of implementing natural climate solutions through forest management."
Building trust is critical to successful conservation programs. But what does it look like to create meaningful relationships with individuals, organizations, and communities? And how can sustaining that support strengthen conservation efforts? In this Connecting for Conservation session, Robert Bonnie, Executive in Residence for the Nicholas Institute, and Dr. Stephanie Malin, Associate Professor of Sociology at Colorado State University, will discuss their work and share best practices.
William K. Reilly, former Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Chair of the Nicholas Institute Board of Advisors, and Robert Bonnie, Executive in Residence at the Nicholas Institute, will be featured speakers at the American University's Center for Environmental Policy webinar "Environmental Attitudes and Innovations in Rural America" on Wednesday, April 15, at 2 p.m. EST.

Earth’s carbon is stored in reservoirs, such as the atmosphere, the ocean, sediments, and trees. In the United States, forests store the equivalent of 52 years’ worth of US carbon emissions. This reservoir is expanding by about 0.5 percent per year; however, net growth is expected to decline over the next 30 years, primarily due to land use changes and forests aging.
Robert Bonnie, a Nicholas Institute executive in residence and former Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will discuss how federal departments and agencies are organized and operate.
