Bruno was a Climate Diplomacy intern at E3G’s London office during 2015. E3G’s Climate Diplomacy programme focuses on how to construct high leverage political interventions which can shape an ambitious outcome in 2015 and beyond.
Bruno’s immediate background is in sustainable cities. He finished the MA in Sustainable Cities (with distinction) programme at King’s College London in 2013 and last year worked at LSE Cities on the New Climate Economy report. LSE Cities wrote the cities chapter of the report working with a number of international research institutions. Bruno’s particular focus for the chapter was on finance and governance issues, researching how city governments could fund climate mitigation and adaptation through analysis of the relative pros and cons of mechanisms such as green bonds, land value capture instruments, and carbon credits. He was a contributing author for a paper that supported this main chapter, and provided research assistance for two other supporting papers.
Alongside his internship at E3G, Bruno is currently working at the International Institute for Environment and Development as a research consultant in the Sustainable Markets team. Prior to coming to London, Bruno worked in the Federal and State parliamentary system in Australia for a number of Members of Parliament. He also completed a BA in Politics (with honours) at Melbourne University.
