Camilla is currently on secondment to the Department for International Development. The UK has been tasked by the UN Secretary General to co-lead the climate resilience and adaptation track for the September Climate summit. Camilla has joined DFID to lead their work on the resilience and adaptation policy package and political strategy.
Prior to her secondment, Camilla worked as a Senior Policy Advisor in Climate Diplomacy, Risk and Security, focusing on delivering high leverage political interventions to shape transformational international outcomes.
Camilla’s particular specialism centred on improving climate risk management in the face of escalating climate impacts and accelerating the low carbon transition.
She worked closely with governments and civil society to provide political strategy and global risk analysis to their international climate objectives. Camilla’s skills in developing political economy analysis, political scenarios and strategy served to support and catalyse diplomatic interventions.
Camilla is also an Associate Senior Fellow with the Stockholm International Peace and Research Institute (SIPRI) where she holds the role of Director for the Expert Working Group on Climate-related Security Risks. The Expert Working Group seeks to strengthen climate risk informed decision-making and programming across the UN system.
From early 2011 Camilla worked with the UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC), holding the role of director from 2013-2014.
Camilla has a Bsc in Geography from the University of Edinburgh. She took a particular interest in Communist cultural memory and engaged in a number of projects on post-communist Europe with other European youth.
Alongside her work at E3G Camilla is proud to be Chair of Climate Outreach, Europe’s leading experts in climate change communications.
