Hannah Pitt

As an International Policy Analyst, Hannah supports CCAP’s Mitigation Action Implementation Network (MAIN) initiative, with a focus on international climate finance policy. Her work involves conducting policy analysis, preparing targeted policy papers, and organizing multi-stakeholder dialogues and policy events to encourage the development and financing of transformational NAMAs and influence the international climate finance framework, including the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the UNFCCC. She also supports CCAP’s on-the-ground work to design and implement Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) in sectors such as renewable energy, energy efficiency and waste management.

 

Prior to joining CCAP, Hannah worked at the Yale University Economic Growth Center, the Jameel Poverty Action Lab and the National Bureau of Economic Research. She conducted quantitative analysis, oversaw data collection for large-scale household surveys and managed program implementation for a number of academic studies on economic development in low-income countries.

Hannah holds a BA in Economics and Environmental Science from Northwestern University and an MPA in International Development from the Harvard Kennedy School. Her empirical analysis of the household welfare impact of Mexico’s recent fossil fuel subsidy reform received the Harvard Environmental Economics Program prize for the best paper in environmental, resource, or energy economics by a Harvard master’s student.
