There was also discussion about ongoing and prospective industry and government trustee collaboration in the natural resource damage assessment arena.  Featured speakers included Roger Martella (GE), Lynn Scarlett (TNC), and NOAA’s own Admiral Gallaudet. 

This symposium was led by the Ad-Hoc Industry Natural Resource Management Group in cooperation with the Environmental Law Institute, George Washington University Law School, and George Washington University Environmental and Energy Management Institute.  The Symposium is a forum that involves multi-stakeholder review of natural resource related policies and practices both within and outside the United States.
