Climate and Sustainability

Portrait of Ipek Gencsu

Since joining the New Climate Economy project and ODI in 2014, Ipek has managed and conducted research for the Annual Reports of the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, which draw together evidence on economic benefits of climate-compatible development in energy, cities and land use. She has conducted research, and managed partnerships of work, on a range of topics including: sustainable infrastructure and finance, energy and fossil fuel subsidies, aviation and maritime transport, and land use (forests and agriculture). She has worked on projects on a number of low- and middle-income developing countries, including Colombia, Ethiopia, Indonesia and Turkey, as well as the G20 and the EU. 

Her past experience includes climate change, migration and gender justice research and advocacy at the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) in London, the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI) in Paris, and at Oxfam International in New York. She has also campaigned for Oxfam in the US and UK on climate and food justice. 

Ipek has an MSc in Political Theory and a BSc in Philosophy and Economics, both from the London School of Economics, and a Certificate in Global Philanthropy from New York University.
