"With good evaluation, in 10 years the world has a better chance to meet the Paris goals and be well below 2 degrees warmer"

I have 25 years experience of evaluating energy policies and am a board member of EEAP.

From the UK and with experience of working in China and South-East Asia, Charles brings 25 years experience of evaluation of policies relating to energy efficiency and security, renewable energy and climate finance.

Evaluation is critical to develop good policies that achieve social and environmental goals

I am particularly interested in sustainable development, climate finance and evaluation methods.

Many countries in Asia Pacific are at an early stage of developing their policies to meet carbon reduction targets. Effective evaluation will help them to get it right first time

Good evaluation of energy policy will help to reduce carbon emissions and other pollution, improving people's lives and mitigating the effects of climate change.
