Recent editing and writing jobs:

Climate-friendly growth

Investing in Climate, Investing in Growth

I edited this ground-breaking OECD report for the German presidency of the G20 group of countries. The report provided conclusive proof that far from damaging economies, climate-friendly policies can actually increase long-term economic growth.

Africa's Climate Opportunity: Adapting and Thriving

I was lead author of the African Development Bank's position paper for the COP21 global climate talks in Paris. I also wrote speeches for the president of the Bank, Akinwumi Adesina, and  many texts to support the Bank's presence at COP21.

"The effects of climate change are being felt all over the planet, but not equally" - Kofi Annan

I wrote the script for this short video made to promote the 2015 Africa Progress Report, Power People Planet: Seizing Africa's Energy and Climate Opportunities.
