Maurice Strong, whose work helped lead to the landmark climate summit that begins in Paris on Monday, has died at 86, the head of the UN’s environmental agency said Saturday. Strong ended his days in China, the largest polluter on the planet.
Strong, born in 1929 in Oak Lake, Man., was a companion of the Order of Canada and a member of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada.
“Strong will forever be remembered for placing the environment on the international agenda and at the heart of development,” Achim Steiner, executive director of the UN Environment Program, said in a statement Saturday.
