Civil society representatives, high level government officials, and legal aid groups from these two countries will reflect on the conclusions of their 2012 US Study Tour.

Speakers include Andrew Steer, president of the World Resources Institute and Dr. Wijarn Simachaya, Secretary General of the Office of Natural Resources and Environment Policy (ONEP), Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Government of Thailand, as well as representatives from the Thailand Environment Institute and the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law.
