Antonio La Viña, DU Guest Professor and Key Figure in the Philippines Delegation to Climate Change Talks: "Climate Change: Up Close and Personal"

Dr. Antonio La Viña, dean of the Ateneo School of Government in the Philippines and widely respected expert on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, taught recently at the Sturm College of Law.

Dr. La Viña was part of the teaching team for "Community Expectations in Natural Resource Development Projects," a pioneering one-week short course offered by the Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy program at the College of Law.

Recently Dr. La Viña took a thoughtful look at his 20 year involvement in climate change issues. During this period he has served, among other things, as the chief negotiator for the Philippines for what eventually became the Kyoto Protocol.

For those interested in climate change the piece, which was published recently in The Manila Standard Today, is well worth reading. It can be accessed by clicking here.
