Prof. Andrea Innamorati is a Senior Policy Advisor for the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea. He has recently completed a fellowship program in sustainability science at the John Fitzgerald Kennedy School of Government in the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, where he focused primarily on sustainable development governance within the European Union institutions. Since 2003, he has represented the Government of Italy in numerous international conferences and multilateral intergovernmental processes related to sustainable development. Innamorati was a key player in the core EU team that negotiated the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production and focal point of the Task Force on Education for Sustainable Consumption led by Italy between 2006 and 2011. He actively participated in the Rio+20 Conference and in the preparatory meetings as special assistant to the EU Bureau Member. Innamorati has represented Italy in the Open Ended Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on the follow up to Rio+20, and in the Intergovernmental Negotiations on the Post 2015 Agenda. Before consulting with the Ministry for the Environment Land and Sea, Prof. Innamorati worked for four years in the private sector, with demanding responsibilities in commercial transactions and customer service operations, an experience which was instrumental in understanding the role and potential of the private sector in working towards sustainable development. He is a visiting lecturer on International Environmental Governance in the Faculty of Law of the Università la Sapienza in Rome.
