If we don't confront climate change,we won't end poverty

Jim Yong Kim, President, World Bank Group

Qualitative and quantitative evaluation of policies is essential for effective and efficient implementation. I support partners in developing methodologies, applying these to the specific context and communicating results. This includes analysis at the national level for national stakeholders as well as from an international perspective.

As part of the Climate Action Tracker team I analysed mitigation policies in various countries related to their effectiveness. I also assessed policy choices at the international level, such as different options to deal with surplus AAUs from the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, or implications of sectoral approaches discussed under the UNFCCC.
