Mariama Williams grew up among Jamaica’s sugarcane plantations, not too far from what would become the ISA headquarters. For the last two decades, she has been teaching and advising governments on feminist economics. She has authored or edited four volumes on finance with a lens on gender. Her latest explores gender in climate finance, setting her up to be a lead author on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest chapter about investment and finance. One of its main findings is that global capital isn’t flowing where climate action needs it.
