In celebration of the upcoming Blog Action Day on the topic of climate change, International Law Observer is glad to announce a guest post from Professor Graciela Chichilnisky, professor of Economics and in Mathematical Statistics of Columbia University.
Professor Chichilnisky has worked extensively in the Kyoto Protocol process, creating and designing the concept of the carbon market. She has worked closely with negotiators of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and functioned as a lead author of the Intergovernamental Panel on Climate Change, inter alia authoring the Protocol language that led to the creation of the carbon market.
Dr Chichilnisky is an active researcher and writes and speaks extensively on globalization and the global environment. She is the author of thirteen books and some 200 scientific articles. From her publications her recent book ‘Saving Kyoto’, in which she gives an overview of the history of global climate negotiations and explains why international cooperation between poor and rich nations has become critical, deserves to be especially highlighted.
We are glad that Professor Chichilnisky was able to join our effort to draw attention to the topic of climate change on the Blog Action Day.
