Case Studies of Threshold Change
The H. John Heinz III Center for Science, Economics and the Environment gratefully acknowledges the support of all those who are sponsoring and participating in the ecothresholds initiative. We thank the Surnda Foundation and The Teresa & H. John Heinz III Fund of the Heinz Family Foundation for their support of the steering committee workshop and the Fall 2006 meeting as a part of the ecothresholds initiative, “Understanding the Consequences of Thresholds in Global Change and Their Implications for Decision-making.” Our gratitude also goes to The Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation for their support of the Global Change Program through a leadership grant to the Threshold project, also complimented with support from The Teresa & H. John Heinz III Fund of the Heinz Family Foundation. We also thank The Nature Conservancy, and Dr. Anthony Janetos, director of the Joint Global Change Research Institute, for their collaboration in this effort.
Established in December 1995 in honor of Senator H. John Heinz III, The Heinz Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan institution dedicated to improving the scientific and economic foundation for environmental policy through multisectoral collaboration. Focusing on issues that are likely to confront policymakers within two to five years, the Center creates and fosters collaboration among industry, environmental organizations, academia, and government in each of its program areas and projects. In this, the Center is carrying out the legacy of Senator Heinz.
The membership of the Center’s Board of Trustees, its steering committees, and all its committees and working groups reflect its guiding philosophy: that all relevant parties must be involved if the complex issues surrounding environmental policymaking are to be resolved.
