                               New Opportunity for Christiana

                               The former executive secretary of the UN framework convention on
                               climate change (UNFCC), Christiana Figueres, was the woman tasked
                               with saving the world from global warming. The hugely successful Paris
                               climate change agreement last December was, in no small part, down
                               to her hugely influential presence and hard work. Figueres served as
                               the UN’s climate chief for 6 years, stepping down in July this year. Ms
                               Figueres was subsequently nominated as a candidate to succeed Ban
                               Ki-moon for post of UN secretary general. Having now withdrawn her
                               candidacy, and with her proven global worth and commitment, she is
                               definitely one to watch as she moves on to new challenges. Whatever
                               Ms Figueres turns her attentions to, she will undoubtedly continue to be
                               one of the movers and shakers of her generation. n
