The purpose of the Coordinating Team is to coordinate action among ABA Sections, Divisions, and Forums (SDF) regarding environmental, energy, and natural resources (EENR) issues in order to (1) elevate knowledge about these issues across the ABA and beyond and (2) foster joint action by SDFs to address these issues. The SDF representatives on the Coordinating Team essentially act as forums for joint discussion of EENR issues and as catalysts for action on EENR issues by the leadership of interested SDFs.
