Dr Bjorn Lomborg to Advise on Australia’s Aid Program
The innovationXchange is an initiative from the Australian Government to provide innovation in Australia’s aid program. That appears a worthwhile idea. However, Dr Bjorn Lomborg has been nominated to the innovationXchange International Reference Group. UWA recently withdrew from the Australian Consensus Centre project, due to Dr Lomborg's involvement in it. It is unfortunate that the Minister for Foreign Affairs exercised poor judgment by nominating Dr Lomborg to the innovationXchang. Other members of the reference group might want to reconsider their membership of it, as a result.
