Carnegie's Greg Asner named Energy/Climate Fellow by US State Department
Date:3/26/2012

Washington, D.C. -- Carnegie staff scientist Greg Asner has been selected as one of 22 experts to serve the U.S. government as part of the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA) through the Senior ECPA Fellows Program. The program will send 22 experts from the academic, non-profit, and private sectors in the United States to act as consultants and speak at engagements throughout the Western Hemisphere. Fellows will work with local government agencies, civil society groups, and universities to discuss regional impacts of climate change and energy policy, and develop relationships for continued multi-lateral cooperation.

Asner has been a staff scientist at Carnegie's Department of Global Ecology since 2001. His research is at the interface of ecosystems, land use, and climate change focusing on tropical deforestation and degradation, functional diversity of tropical canopies, conservation of African savannas, invasive species and climate change, and the effects of land use on the global carbon cycle. He has developed new technologies for conservation assessments, including tropical forest carbon emissions and stocks, hydrologic function and biodiversity. He leads the CLASLite forest change mapping project, spectranomics biodiversity project, and the Carnegie Airborne Observatory.

"Greg's science provides important insights on matters of enormous international significance," commented Carnegie president Richard A. Meserve. "We are proud of Greg's work and are pleased it is being acknowledged through his selection for the Fellows Program."

Director of the Department of Global Ecology Chris Field remarked, "Greg is the leading expert on forest carbon and deforestation. He can play a critical role in this important program."

At the 2009 Summit of the Americas, President Obama invited all countries of the Western Hemisphere to participate in the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas (ECPA)a voluntary and flexible framework fo
