Career and policies
After the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President of Iran, Javadi was appointed Vice-President and Head of the Department of the Environment (DoE). Javadi replaced Masoumeh Ebtekar, who held the post under Mohammad Khatami. Javadi's main responsibility was to oversee the state Environmental Protection Organization. She and Nasrin Soltankhah were the only women in the cabinet.
Javadi articulated[when?] some of her plans for the DoE. She stated that she would work towards the goals of institutionalizing the culture of protecting the environment, boosting public awareness about environmental considerations on the basis of sustainable development, holding environmental training courses from kindergarten all the way up to the universities, and focusing the DoE on the facilitation of research.
When Ahmadinejad was re-elected as president in 2009, Javadi was replaced by Mohammad-Javad Mohammadizadeh.
