CIBER Focus: "Conservation and Sustainable Development in Central Asia" with Vicky Meretsky
Vicky Meretsky describes her time in central Asia as a conservation biologist in an interview with Brenda Bailey-Hughes, Senior Lecturer at the Kelley School of Business. Meretsky, Associate Professor at IU's School of Public and Environmental Affairs, first discusses the origin of conservation biology and compares the conservation efforts in the former Soviet Union with the national parks system in the United States. She points out that while ecotourism is slowly developing in central Asia, there are other opportunities for sustainable development in this region. *This video was recorded as a part of the Indiana University CIBER Focus Vodcast Series.
