Tim came in late yesterday afternoon and drafted the letter
below.

Ann

Dear Patti

Here is a draft letter

World Resources Institute is fully aware of the contents of the bid by the proposed Tyndall Centre at the University of East Anglia to examine integrated approaches to climate change policy, science and adaptation. World Resources Institute supports this bid with enthusiasm and will co-operate with the new Centre in whatever way is appropriate.

Many thanks

Tim O'Riordan
