Report from Paris: Observations from the UNFCCC COP 21 Climate Negotiations
Andrea Tuttle works as an advocate for robust forest and climate policies. She participated in the early design of California's climate program and forest protocols which are now a compliance instrument in the cap-and-trade system. She is a former Director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and now serves on the boards of the Pacific Forest Trust and U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities. Through her career she has been active in California land-use and environmental policy, serving on the state Coastal Commission, the North Coast Regional Water Quality control Board and as a principal consultant in the state Senate. She consults internationally and for the past nine years has attended the UNFCCC climate negotiations as an Observer, especially tracking the REDD+ policies and finance mechanisms to reduce deforestation and degradation in the tropics. She's a Cal Berkeley grad with a B.A. in Biological Sciences and Ph.D. in Environmental Planning, and has lived in Arcata with her husband Don since the 1970's.
