I am Erik Solheim, Head of UN Environment. Climate change, oceans, air pollution, green jobs, diplomacy - ask me anything!
I noticed an interview I did recently was on the front page. It was about the US losing jobs if it pulls out of the Paris Agreement. I hope I can answer any questions you have about that and anything else!
I've been leading UN Environment for a little less than a year now, but I've been working on environment and development much longer than that. I was Minister of Environment and International Development in Norway, and most recently headed the OECD's Development Assistance Committee - the largest body of aid donors in the world. Before that, I was a peace negotiator, and led the peace process in Sri Lanka.
I'll be back about 10 am Eastern time, and 4 pm Central European time to respond!
EDIT Thanks so much for your questions everyone! This was great fun! I have to run now but I will try to answer a few more when I have a moment. In the meantime, you can follow me on:
