Adler to Present at April 3 Webinar on Protecting Pacific Northwest Forests

Robert Adler, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will be one of three presenters at an April 3 webinar presented by the Center for Progressive Reform (CPR) that will focus on its forthcoming publication, Letting Nature Work in the Pacific Northwest: A Manual for Protecting Ecosystem Services under Existing Law.  The webinar will begin at 11:00 a.m. MDT.

According to CPR’s publicity materials, “[This] publication provides policymakers, advocates, and the public with a framework and principles for implementing an ecosystem services approach that is environmentally protective and socially equitable. This approach relies on both science and public participation to set priorities and goals for management decisions, and it helps policymakers and resource managers to identify and apply the existing legal and regulatory tools and drivers to achieve these goals. The manual also applies the ecosystem services approach to protecting the valuable service of flood hazard mitigation in the Pacific Northwest.”

In addition to Adler, other presenters include Robert Glicksman, Professor of Environmental Law at the George Washington University School of Law; Daniel J. Rohlf, professor of law at the Lewis & Clark Law School and of Counsel to Earthrise Law Center; and Robert R.M. Verchick,  the Gauthier-St. Martin Chair in Environmental Law at Loyola University in New Orleans.
