Chunyu Liang '07 (China): UNFCCC position

July 14, 2008

I have just received an offer with the CDM Registration & Issuance Unit under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

The Unit is based in the UNFCCC's secretariat, Bonn, Germany, and is responsible for the registration of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects and for the issuance of certified emission reduction (CERs) credits, under the CDM Executive Board that oversees the whole CDM system. I will be working on the issuance side as much of my past year's experience with my current company, EcoSecurities, a market leader in the CDM field, relates to CDM project monitoring & verification.

I am very happy about this appointment and it feels as if a dream coming true. It is a rare opportunity that allows me to support the international community in responding to the issue of climate change through international mechanism that leads to the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions. What I wanted to say is that being part of the MESPOM group has been an extremely important experience for me to get the offer. I am very grateful of being part of MESPOM!
