Ms Kristin Tilley has been announced as Australia’s Ambassador for Climate Change.
This role has been reinstated to demonstrate to the world Australia’s resolve to urgently step up the pace of action, and work alongside global partners, particularly in the Pacific, to tackle the climate crisis.
Ms Tilley was most recently a First Assistant Secretary at the Department of Industry, Science and Resources, with over 10 years’ experience with international and domestic climate change policy and programs.
The Australian Government thanks former Ambassador for the Environment Mr Jamie Isbister for his contribution to Australia’s engagement on international environment and climate change issues since 2019.
Ms Tilley is part of Australia’s delegation to the 27th United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP27) in Egypt.
