The event was part of the UN’s Academic Impact initiative, bringing together higher education institutions with the United Nations to support universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, literacy, sustainability and conflict resolution. It was co-sponsored by the Government Law Center of Albany Law School, Albany law firm Whiteman Osterman & Hanna LLP, and Academic Impact.

“There is an increasing awareness of the impact globalization has on government sustainability policies,” said Patricia E. Salkin, associate dean at Albany Law School and director of the Government Law Center. “This program is designed to begin a discussion of tools that can potentially be used to help pay for government sustainability policies.” 

“Sustainability in Developing Nations: Opportunities for Public-Private Partnerships” took place on May 16, 2012, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the UN’s Daj Hammarskoldj Library Auditorium. Contact dkoel@albanylaw.edu or 518-445-2329.
