CARE-USA Adviser to Speak on Security in Developing Nations Nov. 11Nov. 10, 1999
Timothy Frankenberger, senior food and household livelihood security advisor for CARE-USA, will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, in the Cowden Room on the third floor of the Bill Daniel Student Center, as part of the Council for International Educational series, "All The News That's Fit to Discuss."
His speech is titled, "Saving Lives or Livelihoods CARE's Approach to Sustainable Development." The lecture will focus on how villages distribute and use resources and stretch them during rough times, such as a drought or seasons when crops are bad.
Frankenberger will look at how developing nations can create social networks so those involved will have somewhere to go. He also will discuss ways to develop, sustain and maintain those networks.
A special foreign film series also is being held in conjunction with the lecture series. The next film to be shown is "Tres Caballeros" at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, in Bennett Auditorium. The film and lecture are free and open to the public.
