Obituary: Annie Courtin

It is with great sadness that the IPCC learned about the passing of a former colleague Ms. Annie Courtin on 11 March 2023.

Annie worked as a Senior Secretary responsible for travel at the IPCC Secretariat from 1997 till 2020 when she retired. She had worked in the UN system in Geneva since 1990 with the World Health Organization, UNAIDS, and the International Trade Center/World Trade Center among others.

“Annie was one of the first people I encountered in IPCC. She was a dear and caring colleague, always with a warm smile and ready to support the work of the Panel, IPCC’s authors and Bureau members as well as everyone at the Secretariat”, said IPCC Secretary Abdalah Mokssit

“Her kind and loving spirit will live on through her children and the lives of the people she touched through her work,” he added.

Ms. Courtin is survived by her husband, two daughters, and a grandchild.
