Dr. Louise Jeffery leads projects around tracking climate action at NewClimate. She has more than eight years’ experience in climate change policy research, primarily in evaluating national mitigation efforts under the UNFCCC. At NewClimate she is focussing on approaches for translating the Paris Agreement to sectoral and country specific needs for reducing emissions. Of particular interest are the agriculture, land-use, and building sectors.
Louise is trained in Earth and Environmental Sciences and 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). She then chose to apply her scientific training to the challenge of climate change. At the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) she developed tools for equity analysis, evaluated country pledges, and developed methods for assessing global progress on mitigation.
