Marion Vieweg (Dipl. oec, MSc) works as senior consultant for energy and climate strategies in Berlin with her own consultancy 'Current Future'. A lot of her work in the past centered around the UNFCCC negotiations and assessing options to enhance the level of ambition globally.
Especially while leading the Climate Action Tracker team from 2011-13 she not only worked at this global level, but also looked at national policy implementation. How far are countries on track towards a low carbon society? This has been the main question underlying much of her research work over the last years. This means taking a close look at national institutions, policies and barriers, but also requires a detailed assessment of what is necessary for the transition to a low carbon society. Those two questions, combined with the need to ensure sustainable development for the poor and most vulnerable in this world continue to be the focus of her work.
