I am a Policy Officer working with ActionAid USA for policies to help poor countries and communities address the impacts of climate change.

Policy Analyst

Poor countries and communities across the world are suffering from the impacts of climate change – a crisis which they did little to create. As a Senior Policy Analyst for ActionAid USA, I advocate for policies that will help developing countries address the impacts of climate change in a just and sustainable way. 

I urge the United States and other developed countries to start treating the climate crisis with the urgency it deserves.
