Dr. Louise Jeffery leads projects in the area of tracking climate action. She has nearly a decade of experience in climate change policy research, primarily in evaluating national mitigation efforts and commitments under the UNFCCC. She developed frameworks and methods to evaluate the sufficiency and fairness of individual governments contributions, and to determine whether the world is collectively on track to meet the Paris Agreement temperature limit. At NewClimate Institute, she is currently focusing on translating the Paris Agreement into sectoral and country specific needs for reducing emissions. Of particular interest are the agriculture, land-use, and buildings sectors. Louise holds a B.Sc. and M.Sci. from the University of Cambridge (Geology) and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan (Earth and Environmental Sciences).
