Please introduce yourself and explain why you want to join this network. Membership may be denied for people who do not answer this question in sufficient detail
I work in London as the press officer for the International Institute for Environment and Development. As a former journalist (news editor of SciDev.Net) and former scientist (doctorate in rain forest ecology), I am interested in ways of improving the communication of research findings that are relevant to public policy in general and sustainable development in particular. I set up the Research and Media Network for journalists, science communicators and researchers to share information, contacts and opportunities. I am also a freelance illustrator, most recently of the zoology textbook Extraordinary Animals by Ross Piper - http://ms-illustrator.blogspot.com/

Hi Mike,

Not entirely sure at this point if I'm going to Bonn either. It depends on how my work shapes up by the end of the month.

I think I heard at Poznan that the IIED (with the BCAS?) is implementing a large CBA project in Bangladesh sometime soon. Is that correct? Can you tell me where I can find more information on that?

Many thanks and hope you're well!

Thanks for reinforcing my thoughts on Dot Earth, Mike!
Hope you are well. Are you going to Bonn for the AWG-KP meetings?
