Clare Stott joined Itad in the autumn of 2016 as a Consultant in the Climate Change theme. Her main areas of focus are the Global Resilience Partnership and Ideas 2 Impact, where she supports technical input and design for Theory of Change and Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning activities.

Clare has a background in research and programme delivery for climate change in developing countries. Before joining Itad, she was an independent consultant, delivering climate policy, governance and finance projects for the International Institute for Environment and Development. Previously to this, Clare worked with the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh. Her research focussed on climate change adaptation, including work on adaptation technologies and disaster risk reduction. She co-founded and managed a climate change knowledge network that supports climate-related programme and policy development in Bangladesh.
