Camille Serre works as a Senior Advisor in the areas of municipal climate policy and urban transformation. Since 2015, she has been engaged in strengthening cooperation between European municipalities in the field of climate protection. She brings together policy-makers, experts and practitioners from various European countries in order to provide new impetus for climate policy on the ground and to facilitate the exchange of expertise. Her focus is on making climate policy more accessible by demonstrating the potential of climate policy measures in tackling local socio-economic challenges. She has already gained extensive experience in the German-Polish context and is currently supporting the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe with her expertise.
Camille Serre also spent four years working for the Secretariat of the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP), a network of more than 30 governments, where she oversaw the exchange of experience and expertise in emissions trading. She can thus draw on extensive knowledge in the coordination of bilateral and multilateral cooperation projects as well as in the planning, organisation and implementation of activities for capacity building and knowledge exchange.
Camille Serre has many years of experience in supporting political processes and in designing and implementing knowledge materials and brief analyses tailored to target groups, as well as instruments and potential for climate protection. In addition, she is familiar with the needs and challenges of European municipalities with regard to climate policy measures and the related political issues at local and national level.
Before joining adelphi, Camille Serre gained practical experience in climate policy in Germany, France, and the USA. She supported the establishment of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) for the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and researched US climate policy at the Worldwatch Institute in Washington D.C. together with the French Institute IDDRI.
Camille Serre studied International Relations at Sciences Po in Paris with a focus on Sustainable Development and Environmental Policy (MA). During her studies, she spent two semesters abroad at the Otto Suhr Institute for Political Science at Freie Universität Berlin.
