Senior project manager – Development finance and International

Claire joined I4CE in 2022 to contribute to the expansion of I4CE’s impact-orientated research and dialogue with public financial institutions and support them with the mainstreaming of climate change into their activities. As such, she heads the Secretariat of the “Mainstreaming Climate in Financial Institutions” Initiative and contributes to the production of research and to public debates on the role of public financial institutions in the transition.


Before joining I4CE, Claire spent 7 years as a consultant, and later manager, for a consultancy firm specialised in the development of public infrastructure and services in developing countries. There, she managed projects for government institutions and international organizations on issues related to climate policies, the energy transition, innovative financing mechanisms for mitigation, adaptation and biodiversity. She notably engaged with multiple high-level stakeholders in public and private institutions, including international and local banks. Prior to this experience, Claire had spent 2 years at CDC climat –  where she initiated the institution’s activities in the field of international development – and 2 years at AFD in Indonesia – where she worked on infrastructure projects with climate co-benefits.


Claire is a graduate of ESCP Europe and of Paris Dauphine University in international economics.

The year will close at COP 28, where we will officially take stock of current achievements.

    Public development banks in the spotlight: What we should be looking out for

    The end of the year is always a busy period for the climate finance world, with international events multiplying to take stock of the latest achievements in the implementation of the Paris agreement and to identify the next – more ambitious – steps to be taken by the international community.
