My apologies - I had meant to put the
in the message and forgot.

I am sure Jacob will fill in the gaps when he has warmed the MdR seat for a
few more days.  In the meanwhile, here's some unofficial bio information
which may assist.
Jacob is a Canadian national and holds a BA in Cultural Geography and

He previously led the investment team at the United Nations Environment
Programme Finance Initiative, a global partnership between the United
Nations and the financial services sector. 

While at UNEP FI Jacob was one of the founders of the Principles for
Responsible Investment process. His responsibilities also included the Asset
Management Working Group and the North American Task Force. 

Prior to this he held a joint internship with the International Institute
for Sustainable Development and the United Nations Environment Programme. 

During university Jacob did research at the Global Environmental Change and
Human Security Project, aid work in Guyana, communications and statistics at
the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, and community
planning at the Regional District of Comox-Strathcona.

Welcome Jacob.

Thank you for the introduction Liz. Are there any other support 
documents that you could point me to? i.e. org chart, job descriptions, 
etc., anything that might help me better understand your request?

Much thanks in advance and best wishes to Jacob with his new position.
