Board of trustees

IIED's board of trustees is legally responsible for all the activities that we undertake. The trustees are all unpaid volunteers who are responsible for ensuring that IIED abides by its charitable aims, works within the law and delivers its mission effectively by overseeing our overall policies and objectives and ensuring our work is monitored and evaluated effectively.

Chaired by Tara Shine, an experienced policy adviser and climate negotiator, the IIED board of trustees is presently made up of 12 representatives from 10 countries around the world. They serve for a three-year term, which can be renewed for a further three years.
