Laura leads the work around E3G Public Bank Climate Tracker Matrix, which assesses how the most well-known public banks, including Multilateral and National Development Banks, are mainstreaming climate change into their work.

As part of the Public Bank’s team, Laura engages with banks, policy-makers, academia and civil society actors globally to drive ambition at critical multilateral, bilateral and regional financial institutions to accelerate the deployment of public funding sources to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. 

Before joining E3G, Laura worked at the German development agency GIZ in the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) Facility, a multi-donor fund under the auspices of BMU, BEIS, the EU and CIFF. The fund supports ambitious climate mitigation action in ODA-eligible countries. During this time, she led the analysis of countries’ updated Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to advise donor funding decisions. Prior to this, she worked at MicroEnergy International — a boutique consulting firm at the interface of sustainable finance and clean energy access — advising financial institutions in the design and implementation of green financial mechanisms in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Laura has previously authored reports on new business models and tax incentives for the uptake of clean technologies in developing countries as well as for the design of climate finance projects in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector.

Laura holds a B.Sc. in Environmental and Resource Management from the Brandenburgische Technische Universität Cottbus-Senftenberg and a Masters in Public Policy from the Hertie School in Berlin.

Originally from Colombia and raised in Peru, in her free time Laura loves to run, eat, and (attempting to) skate.
