Join us for the next talk in our Sustainability Professionals Speaker Series: 

Pamela Chasek, co-founder and Executive Editor of the Earth Negotiations Bulletin, Professor of Political Science at Manhattan College.

Ms. Chasek will discuss her book 'Transforming Multilateral Diplomacy' which provides an insider’s perspective of the negotiations that produced the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Not only did this process mark a sea change in how the UN conducts multilateral diplomacy, it changed the way the UN does its business. Told from the unique point of view of Ambassador Macharia Kamau - and other key participants from governments, the UN Secretariat, and civil society - this book tells the story of the people, issues, negotiations, and paradigm shifts that unfolded through the Open Working Group (OWG) on SDGs and the subsequent negotiations on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. 

Sponsored by the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies, and the USC Environmental Studies Program.
