Thanks for forwarding the information on ENRICH as well as the proposal CRU
submitted. I haven't yet looked at the latter in detail, as I received it
only this morning, but I will. I have written to Steve Morgan of IPCC's
interest in acting in a catalytic capacity to help spark something, and I
indicated that we could move quickly to submit a proposal for preparatory
support to develop a training proposal, if we can find the right
Earlier, I contacted Hassan Virji and Roland Fuchs at START. To my
surprise, they were lukewarm about the possibility of collaboration on
this, primarily (it seemed to me)because they felt ENRICH would not be
likely to channel support to such a training activity through them. I
indicated that I thought it could go through a partnership of some European
institution and a participating START center, such as BIOTROP in Indonesia.
They were still lukewarm, perhaps because of the ongoing effort they are
involved in on integrated assessment. I would have thought this created
more opportunities for synergy, but perhaps I'm wrong.
Anyway, I'm not sure what else to do for the moment other than to wait and
see if Steven Morgan has a more positive response. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again for the information and a copy of your proposal.
