I help to write the Earth Negotiations Bulletin, the de facto institutional memory of multilateral environmental negotiations at the UN and in other places. The publication is a trusted, timely, independent record of negotations across the spectrum of environmental issues. So far, I’ve focused on climate, oceans, and plant biodiversity.
It works like this: multilateral negotiations usually have a lot of rooms all going simultaneously. Not every group can be everywhere, or even at the conference. Our job is to do exactly that: be in as many rooms as possible, make notes, and write out something understandable by the end of the day.
The writers, photographers, and editors I work with are the smartest, coolest people in the world. Find out more about them—and read the Bulletins—here.
