CAST OF CHARACTERS
This book creates a rich empirical depiction of UNEP’s first fifty years through formal interviews with about two hundred individuals, including current and former UNEP and UN leaders and staff members, government representatives, intergovernmental organization officials, and civil society representatives. The Cast of Characters section provides an overview of the women and men whose voices appear several times throughout the narrative and illustrates their relationship to and perspective on UNEP. For many others quoted in the book identities remain protected. A dagger (†) following a name indicates that the person is deceased.
