Sustainable Globalization,Trade and Development

Presented by CIPS and IPEN

Concerns around trade, migration, technological change, security and an apparent resurgence in nationalism are consistently in the headlines. Yet governments at the recent G20 Summit agreed on shared objectives of creating jobs and growth, and making the economy work for all, despite their different economic and political systems. Amidst current tensions, Jonathan T. Fried will share his perspective on the G20 outcomes, and on the path Canada is taking to support sustainable growth both at home and internationally.

Adrien Bouguen, University of California, Berkeley

French

We study the impact of preschools and the issue of close substitutes in a Cam-bodian context where newly built formalized preschools are competing with existing alternative early childcare arrangements. In addition to estimating the reduced-form impact of a vast preschool construction program using a random assignment, we implement several empirical techniques to isolate the impact on children who would have stayed at home if they had not been en-rolled in the newly built preschools.

Crisis in Biodiversity: Saving What's Left

As the dramatic loss of biodiversity continues to ravage the environment and threaten human well-being, it is increasingly clear that the largest barriers to saving nature are political, not scientific or technical.  The challenge to global and national environmental governance is to develop do-able solutions and to activate political support for such action. Among the bold solutions being offered is the allocation of half of the planet's surface to nature.
