Carolyn is supporting the A2ii's ongoing implementation and capacity building activities, and is A2ii's consultation calls lead. Prior to joining the A2ii Carolyn did an internship with the UNFCCC secretariat in Bonn. The work variously involved supporting least developing countries in the development of their national adaptation plans and policies and building resilience for adaptation to climate change. Carolyn holds a Master's degree in Governance and Public Policy from the University of Passau.
