International Cryosphere Climate Initiative

Pam Pearson is the Director and Founder of the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative (ICCI). She served for 20 years as a U.S. diplomat with the Department of State, with postings to Ecuador, Sweden and Norway; and worked also on global issues such as climate change, international health including HIV/AIDS, and nuclear security and non-proliferation. After leaving government, she worked as a consultant to various climate organizations and to the first Norwegian Arctic Council chairmanship, and subsequently founded ICCI in 2010 to bring a science-policy focus to the rapid changes occurring in all cryosphere regions throughout the globe. A registered non-profit in both the U.S. and Sweden, ICCI stresses the importance of cryosphere preservation to the global climate system, working with multilateral organizations such as the UNFCCC, UNEP, WMO; and academic institutions. Ms. Pearson holds degrees from Rice University and the University of Texas School of Public Health (MS).
