Gregg Smith joined Itad in autumn 2018 as a Research Analyst in the Climate Change theme.
Before joining Itad, Gregg worked as an independent consultant on a range of M&E projects with both Itad and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS). Gregg recently spent time in Madagascar, conducting research for a qualitative evaluation of a large-scale drought response/social protection programme. At the same time, he researched conflict around an upcoming mining project after winning a small fieldwork grant from the Governing the Land-Water-Environment Nexus in Southern Africa project.
Gregg holds a Masters in Poverty and Development from IDS, where his thesis examined the social impacts of a national park in Madagascar on local forest-dependent communities. He also has a BA (Hons) in Geography and French Studies from Lancaster University and is fluent in French.
