Jan Dusík (born 25 April 1975) is a Czech politician, former Minister of Environment, activist and since 18 July 2011 working in the regional office for Europe of the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva; he has been the Acting Director of the Office since 1 December 2011. He was appointed regional director on 31 January 2014.
Minister of Environment
He has served as the Deputy Minister before being appointed the Minister of Environment in November 2009. This change was done after the former minister Ladislav Miko left to work for the European Commission.
Jan Dusík resigned in March 2010 over plans to modernise the controversial Prunéřov coal-fired power plant in north-west Bohemia. ČEZ’s plans to modernise Prunéřov made international headlines in early 2010 when the Pacific island nation of Micronesia wrote to the Czech Environment Ministry, in the framework of the Espoo Convention, saying that the effect of CO2 emissions from Prunéřov and plants like it would eventually see low-lying Pacific islands submerged under the waves due to rising sea levels.
