Emmanuel Naniuzeyi, Ph.D., director of the IEC, said, “the speaker is addressing the issue of climate change at the request of some students who felt the topic is timely and appropriate.” This is the first of three major lectures on global issues that will be held at SSU.

Salamat works as a senior program officer at the UN Secretary General’s Climate Change Support Team, based in New York City. He joined the Division for Sustainable Development of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) as an expert on policy aspects of climate change in January 2002.
