Thomas Day is a founding partner of NewClimate Institute, and began working in the field of international climate policy in 2012. Specifically, Thomas has worked on potential for raising pre-2020 ambition for the international climate change negotiation process, analysis of market mechanisms, and the analysis of the potential economic and social co-benefits for climate change mitigation strategies. Thomas also works with specific countries to support the ongoing development of national climate change mitigation policy, particularly through support for the development of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs). Before joining NewClimate, Thomas was an International Climate Policies Consultant at Ecofys, and previously a Scientific Assistant with the Technical Support Unit of IPCC Working Group III at Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts Research. Thomas also spent time in South Africa where he worked with a local development bank, and conducted research on the development impacts of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in South Africa.
