The good news on climate change

Christiana Figueres was appointed Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in May 2010. Ms. Figueres has been involved in climate change negotiations since 1995. She was a member of the Costa Rican negotiating team and represented Latin America and the Caribbean on the Executive Board of the Clean Development Mechanism in 2007, before being elected Vice President of the Bureau of the Conference of the Parties in 2008-2009. In 1995 she founded the Center for Sustainable Development of the Americas, a non-profit think tank for climate change policy and capacity-building, which she directed until 2003.
