UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed Janos Pasztor as UN's senior climate advisor. Pasztor, WWF Acting Executive Director for Conservation, will support Ban Ki-moon’s efforts to reach an agreement at the Paris climate conference in December.  He will also focus on mobilizing global climate action on the ground. WWF International congratulates Janos on his appointment, which comes at an essential time for global climate negotiations. The Paris conference agreement, which aims to avert the worst consequences of climate change, will indeed be key to ensure global temperatures stay below the dangerous threshold of a 2°C increase”.
