Lina Maria Puerto Chaves

Lina Maria Puerto Chaves is an Associate at Transforma – a not-for-profit environmental organisation and think tank in Colombia. There she supports evidence-based advocacy to increase climate ambition in decision-making spheres, specifically aimed at including coal in the Colombian carbon tax, and fostering an informed dialogue on decarbonisation. Simultaneously, Lina Maria assists the Climate and Development group of the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC) with research on the political economy of the energy transformation in developing countries.

She has a law degree from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia with a postgraduate specialization in Environmental Law from the Universidad Externado in Bogotá, Colombia, and also holds a Master of Environment from the University of Melbourne in Australia. Lina Maria has experience in environmental legal compliance in the energy sector and has been a consultant for initiatives such as 100 Resilient Cities from the Rockefeller Foundation and WWF's One Planet City Challenge.

During her stay at Agora Energiewende, Lina Maria is exploring the implications that a global energy transition, more specifically commitments to shift from coal power generation to renewable energy, may have on coal exporting countries, which are developing or emerging economies.
