ideas were used by the Roundtable co-chairs and staff to develop an action plan for activities to be undertaken by the Roundtable over the next few years.
To date, the Roundtable has explored topics such as linking knowledge with action for sustainable development, environmental regulation and its alternatives, sustainability indicators, rapid urbanization, and rebuilding the Gulf Coast Region in a sustainable manner. Major activities currently are being planned to examine the effectiveness of public-private partnerships for sustainability, certification of sustainable goods and services, urban environmental sustainability, sustainable energy, food security, and to discuss federal research and development activities to address selected high priority challenges to sustainability.
