Last week, I launched a new multimedia series called Climate Leaders to bring greater focus to the ongoing conversation about the threat of climate change and to speak with some of the top minds among industry, business and government stakeholders. This week, in the midst of the COP21 climate negotiations in Paris, we focus on international collaboration to solve big issues and the challenge of broadening and scaling up efforts to mitigate climate change.

In the second installment of Climate Leaders, I talk with Maggie Comstock, Senior Manager for Climate and Biodiversity Finance Policy at Conservation International (CI). In her role, Comstock manages CI’s overall biodiversity policy engagement, with particular focus on matters related to finance. She also leads the organization’s work on climate finance policy, working to create the frameworks and models needed to unlock additional funding for climate-related priorities through engagement with governments, multilateral organizations, the Green Climate Fund and the private sector.

Prior to joining CI, Maggie worked as a Policy Analyst at USGBC focusing on international green building policy, sustainable cities and global market development. In 2013 and 2014, she served as a Regional Representative for North America to the United Nations Environment Programme, an elected civil society role.

I hope you enjoy this latest episode of Climate Leaders. Keep following our COP21 conversation on Twitter, and stay tuned for upcoming audio and video episodes featuring leadership from local government authorities, USGBC members and other member organizations from the World Green Building Council.
