More recently, Robinson’s work has sought to help safeguard the planet. She served as a UN Envoy on Climate Change in 2014 and a UN Special Envoy on El Nino and Climate in 2016. She is now alloying her commitments to human rights and the environment through the Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice. Central to the organisation’s mission is a dedication to placing “justice and equity at the heart of responses to climate change”, while empowering poor and marginalised communities who are disproportionately affected by the impact of rising global temperatures. Those values are also at the heart of her new book "Climate Justice - Hope, Resilience, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future".
