As world leaders and global advocates consider how to effectively combat climate change, it's not surprising that some of the voices at the table have Peace Corps in their background. That was the case during the most recent round of climate change negotiations in Poznan, Poland.
A recent Washington Post article quoted two prominent advocates who are RPCVs. Keya Chaterjee, Deputy Director of Climate Change Programs for the World Wildlife Fund-US, served as a Morocco volunteer from 1998-2000. The article also quoted Doug Boucher, a Costa Rica volunteer from 1971 to 1973 who directs the tropical forest climate initiative for the Union of Concerned Scientists.
