Christian Friedrich in conversation with Dr. Kathleen Mar. Kathleen Mar leads the research group "Climate Action in National and International Processes (ClimAct)” at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam, Germany. ClimAct focuses on participation in and understanding of political forums that aim to drive climate action, with a particular emphasis on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). Kathleen holds a Ph.D. in atmospheric chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley and worked at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) prior to joining the IASS. This perspective - combining scientific expertise with practical experience in the world of policy and administration - shapes her approach to both research and policy-oriented work.
