2022 Global SAAC Leaders

SAAC and Global Task Force on Environmental Action Leaders

The regional SAAC leaders serve one-year terms unless their term is renewed. In 2022, North America and Europe held elections, and new leaders are in place. Africa will hold elections in March and East Asia, Latin America, and South Asia/Central Asia will continue with the current SAAC leaders.

The Global Task Force on Environmental Action, a group created by the SAAC, also elected a team of new leaders. In brief, the Global Task Force on Environmental Action was established to:

  • Raise awareness among development practitioners about the necessity of integrated approaches,
  • Utilize the scope and scale of the MDP network to advance unified climate action and behavioral change, and
  • Actively promote a sustainable and just transformation at universities associated with the MDP.

Following are the 2022 Global SAAC Leaders representing the six MDP regions (East Asia, South Asia, Africa, North America, Latin America, and Europe ).  See their bios and contact information here.
