United Nations

Last week in Ideas, we mentioned that our colleague Chris Roberts, President, IAM, spoke at the United Nations and said it was a good idea to discuss asset management as a national activity. This week, ALN CEO Jim Dieter thought it important to share the source link to the web presentation, which includes a “spot on” understanding of asset leadership by Caroline Lombardo, Chief, United Nations Financing for Sustainable Development Office at United Nations and others on the program. The web program also describes a new free, self-paced online course that self-paced course developed by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs based on Infrastructure Asset Management for Sustainable Development, a best-in-class approach to structured asset management.
