Research Analyst – Financing the transition to agriculture, Carbon certification

Thomas joined I4CE‘s Agriculture division at the beginning of 2019 and initially worked on the environmental measures of the CAP as well as on the risks related to changes in agricultural practices. In addition to his participation in the management of the “Carbon Forest Wood” and “Climate Agriculture” clubs, Thomas now focuses on the evaluation of the socio-economic and environmental impacts of a “fair transition” of the French agro-food system.


Thomas holds a dual degree in “Environmental Sciences and Policies” from Paris VI and SciencesPo Paris.

    Livestock farming transition: managing past investments and rethinking future ones

    Accompanying the decline in livestock numbers. All transition scenarios rely on a decline in livestock numbers to meet climate targets. Yet in France, most livestock populations are already declining. The challenge is not only to continue this trend, but also to support it, to ensure a fair and acceptable transition for livestock farmers and other players in the livestock industry. This is particularly true for the dairy sector.

    Carbon sinks: is France’s ambition realistic?

    The French National Low-Carbon Strategy (SNBC) aims at doubling the volume of CO2 removals thanks to the contribution of the forest-based sector, the agricultural sector and the geological carbon capture and storage technologies. The projections concerning these compartments and the underlying technical assumptions have been explored and compared to the existing literature in an in-depth analysis, with the goal of clarifying the challenges and conditions for this massive increase in carbon removals. The conclusions are that far-reaching changes are required in the different sectors and that some objectives for the forest-based sector may be impossible to achieve.

    Promoting and reporting on climate action carried out within the framework of the Low-Carbon Standard

    In the context of the development of the Low Carbon Label, one of the recurring questions from potential financiers is: "What am I allowed to say and do when financing certified low carbon projects? With this publication, I4CE provides operational and pragmatic answers.

    Will the obligation of environmental results green the CAP?

    One of the main elements of the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the 2021-2027 exercise is the shift of part of the funding towards an obligation to achieve environmental results. Is that an expensive development? Environmentally effective? In order to answer these questions, this I4CE study analyses numerous mechanisms, more or less oriented towards performance obligation.
