Dr. Angela Falconer is Associate Director based in London. She joined CPI in 2010 and led international public climate finance tracking efforts for the first editions of the Global Landscape of Climate Finance. She subsequently led studies in Indonesia and Côte D’Ivoire to build national landscapes of climate finance, in collaboration with relevant ministries. Angela was heavily involved in CPI’s Indonesia program in its early years, including roles advising the Government of Indonesia on national climate fund design and studies evaluating fiscal policies in the palm oil sector.
Angela has a particular interest in sustainable agriculture and forests and through her work with the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance, and has led CPI’s support to develop the Climate Smart Lending Platform and the Cloud Forest Blue Energy Mechanism, as well as work with the European Forest Institute and UN-REDD to identify entry points and incentives for public and private investment in sustainable land use.
Prior to joining CPI, Angela worked as a climate change and energy policy consultant, primarily for European government agencies. Angela holds a PhD in the Science and Management of Climate Change from Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where her thesis focussed on REDD+ finance, an MSc in Environmental Change and Management from the University of Oxford, and an MA in Geography from the University of Glasgow.
