UPDATE: Professor Emeritus John Odell has been working with SIR's co-sponsor for this event, the Centre for International Governance Innovation, in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Thanks to the work of POIR candidate Hai-Vu Phan, they have produced a rapporteur report on the panel proceedings. A key point in the conclusion of the report was that efforts to deal with global warming must shift from mitigation efforts alone toward the inclusion of adaptation measures.
Please take a look at the project website here. The report and other materials are at the bottom of the page.
