The following personnel participated in the meeting:
GW-E&EM/GETF partnership possibilities discussed at the meeting included those involving the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Agency for International Development, World Bank, and Global Initiatives, Inc. Project areas include sustainable urban management, emergency response and preparedness, commercial applications of remote technologies in the renewable natural resources area, and international environmental protection.
