Approximately 1.1 billion people live in poverty worldwide, with most depending directly on the environment for their water, food, fuel and housing. This four- part lecture series will explore the environment as both the "cause of" and "way out" for people living in poverty. It is intended to establish a dialogue and information exchange among policy makers, indigenous peoples and their advocates, academics, business leaders, authors, and the general public. The series is an initiative of Fordham University, an institution founded in the Jesuit tradition of pursuing open intellectual discourse for the betterment of our world, The Nature Conservancy, and the Equator Initiative program of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
