Other panelists will be Sharon Burke, senior advisor at the New America Foundation; Thomas Lovejoy, biodiversity chair of the Heinz Center for Science, Economics, and the Environment at George Mason University; and Carmen Tull, public health advisor for the Office of Population and Reproductive Health at USAID.
