Inès Bakhtaoui joined SEI Oxford in June 2020 as Research Associate working on the CEDIL Climate Finance Effectiveness Project. She supports the development of a systematic review that aims to better understand the mechanisms that boost or hinder the effectiveness of financial instruments intended to support climate change adaptation and mitigation in the Global South.
Inès holds a MEng in Civil Engineering from l’Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne (France) and a MSc in Climate Change Management and Finance from Imperial College London. There, she wrote her thesis on catastrophe bonds and their suitability as a mechanism of risk transfer in low- and middle-income countries, and whether their use could increase financing for climate change-induced disasters.
Inès has a previous research background and work experience in climate change governance, clean energy and sustainable finance. She has a strong interest in loss and damage, climate change education and awareness raising, and adaptation finance.
Prior to joining SEI Oxford, Inès sailed across the Atlantic on the Regina Maris, a three-masted ship hosting a youth-led European think tank on sustainable travel.
