PVCHR appoints Parul Sharma as Regional Executive Director, Climate Justice in South Asia.
It is with great pleasure PVCHR and Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi can confirm the appointment of Ms. Parul Sharma as the organization’s Regional Executive Director with focus on Climate Justice in Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan. Ms. Sharma’s task will be to develop the Bali Principles of Climate Justice through networks and partnership with focus on grassroots movements in the region. It is rather clear that those who have contributed most to the problems have the greatest responsibility to help resolve them and South Asia is already severely affected by climate change. Parul Sharma will partly have her base in Stockholm, Sweden.
“With Ms. Sharma’s extensive knowledge of sustainable development within civil society groups, corporate world and governmental experience she becomes the perfect combination to be both a trustworthy spokesperson and a strong strategist. Moreover, with her background in the South Asian region we see no other person who could strengthen PVCHR’s climate justice work the way Parul Sharma can,” says Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi the founder and Executive President of PVCHR.
“This is the time to act for climate justice and with my devotion for the region and the will and wish to speed up the justice part of things, it was very hard for me to say nothing else but yes to this opportunity. I have worked and known PVCHR since many years now, and it is a genuine people’s movement with ears towards the grassroots, which is important for findingsolutions”, says Parul Sharma.
Ms. Parul Sharma will join on the 1st of February 2020.
Signed with great pleasure,
Dr. Lenin Raghuvanshi.
