Dale Evarts joined the US EPA in 1988 after completing a Presidential Management Fellowship and has worked on a variety of programs in the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS), including the interface between air pollution and water quality, strategic planning for air quality programs, state-EPA relations, and regional program management.  From 1995 through 2005, Mr. Evarts was the OAQPS International Programs Coordinator, where he led and was involved in US EPA and international efforts to address transboundary air pollution and to build capacity to improve air quality.  This work, which continues today, includes international treaties such as the recently completed Minamata Convention on Mercury and the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants, the Climate and Clean Air Coalition and bilateral cooperation with Canada, Mexico, China, India, and South Africa.  Since 2006, Mr Evarts has directed the Climate, International, and Multimedia Group in OAQPS which manages international air quality programs, addresses the linkages between climate change and air quality, as well as the impacts of air pollution on water quality and ecosystems.  He is currently the US Secretariat to the Working Group for the China-EPA Clean Air and Energy Strategy and served until its completion in 2011 on the steering group for the UN Environmental Programme’s Integrated Assessment on Black Carbon and Tropospheric Ozone. He received Bachelor of Science and Masters of Public Affairs degrees from North Carolina State University.
