Frederik Staun

10 years of increasing responsibility at UNEP DTU Partnership working across a range of climate change issues (GHG inventories, MRV, mitigation, finance) including 3 years with UNDP in Uganda and New York. In-depth understanding of national sustainable development challenges gained from working with senior government officials in more than 30 developing countries.

I am very excited about coordinating the CBIT Global Coordination Platform as it presents the essence of what I believe are the strongest mechanisms for capacity development: peer-to-peer learning, south-south cooperation and knowledge sharing.

CBIT is supporting countries to respond to article 13 of the Paris Agreement and the national CBIT projects provide an opportunity for countries to build capacity to institutionalize mechanims to report on progress of NDC implementation. In this process, the platform is expected to provide information about all national CBIT project and create linkages for peer learning. 

Please feel free to reach out for any enquiries or ideas on how to improve the platform..
