The three envoys–Norwegian ex-Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, President Ricardo Lagos Escobar of Chile, and former GA President Han Seung-soo–are also prominent in international environmental affairs, says Ban’s spokesperson, Michele Montas.

“The Secretary-General looks forward to working with these three highly respected international figures on a matter which is of highest importance to the future of the planet,” Ms. Montas said.
