Green Climate Fund to Appoint Ajay Mathur as Director Tomorrow

The Green Climate Fund, being set up to distribute emissions-cutting and adaptation money to developing countries from richer nations, will tomorrow appoint Ajay Mathur as director.

Mathur will start in a “bridging” role at least until a permanent executive director is appointed around the middle of next year, Richard Kinley, deputy executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, said today by phone. Mathur was previously director general of the Indian Bureau of Energy Efficiency in New Delhi, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
