He is a co-founder for the Center for Human Rights and Environment where in 2014, he took a leadership role at the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CACC) and is helping the UN coalition to promote the phaseout of climate pollutants such as methane and black carbon. Additionally, he acted as the Chief Strategic Advisor to the Secretary of Environment of Argentina from 2006 to 2008.
