On Thursday, June 26, 2008, the Center for Global Development hosted its third annual Richard H. Sabot Lecture, in memory of Dick Sabot, a friend, co-author, and founding member of CGD's board of directors. We were honored to have Lord Nicholas Stern, IG Patel Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics and author of the Stern Review, deliver this year's lecture, entitled "The Economics of a Global Deal on Climate Change."
CGD President Nancy Birdsall hosted this event, with Dick Sabot's son, Oliver Sabot, and CGD's Chairman of the Board, Ed Scott, providing remarks before the lecture.
