Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) is the chairman of the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee. Legislation that would considerably weaken the Endangered Species Act of 1973 was put to the committee after a bill passed the House late last year. As chairman, Inhofe—whose environmental record is questionable—has significant influence over the impact of such legislation on important environmental protections.

As Deputy Executive Director of UNEP, Mr. Shafqat Kakakhel has been a tireless advocate for ensuring and expanding access to clean water for underserviced populations around the globe.
