Ethiopia/Insurance Audio Slideshow!

The audio slideshow that I've been promoting here is finished! It will be officially launched today in Geneva, Switzerland at the Global Humanitarian Forum, and will be introduced by the former UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan. Also being launched today is our new publication on weather index insurance for development - PDF brief (with my photo!!) - which also has some of my photos and a case study I wrote on the Millennium Villages Project.

Take a look at the slideshow below, it runs about 5 minutes - it features several of my pictures from Ethiopia (mostly some closeups of the farmers, and the games from March)... and also some music from an Ethiopian CD I picked up along the way!

Look for my name in the end credits!

Update: the Earth Institute issued a press release!
