Sustainable Energy for All?: Assessing Distributive Justice in the Green Climate Fund’s Energy Finance

by Diana Dorman, Environmental Studies Program, University of Colorado Boulder

Biography: Diana Dorman is a Ph.D. student in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Her research interests focus on the intersection of equitable energy access, international climate institutions, and development studies. Before coming to CU, Diana worked in several nonprofit organizations including in Malaysia on issues of sustainability and social justice in the palm oil industry, in Nevada on renewable energy at the state legislature, and in Lake Tahoe on fundraising and environmental project management. Diana completed her M.S. in Environmental Studies in 2019 at CU Boulder where her thesis investigated the funding trends of energy projects and related policy linkages within the Green Climate Fund, the newest climate finance mechanism under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. She holds a B.A. in International Affairs and B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Cassandra Brooks is an Assistant Professor in Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. She completed her PhD at Stanford University studying international ocean policy, with a focus on marine protection in the Antarctic. During that time she was also a core member of The Last Ocean, a grand-scale media project focused on the Ross Sea. Her efforts helped drive the adoption of the world’s largest marine protected area in the Ross Sea, Antarctica – one of healthiest and most productive marine ecosystems left on Earth. In 2015, she was awarded a Switzer Fellowship in Environmental Leadership. During her previous graduate work at Moss Landing Marine Labs, she studied Antarctic toothfish in the Ross Sea, a population that supports the most remote fishery on Earth. Cassandra has worked in the lab, underwater, and at sea – including five research cruises to Antarctica – and has presented and published her work around the world. Cassandra is also trained as a Science Communicator through the University of California Santa Cruz and has published more than 150 articles and multi-media stories about marine science and the environment. Cassandra is also Science Faculty with Homeward Bound, a global women's leadership initiative set in Antarctica.uture, and the future of the earth.
