Director, Environment, Energy and Climate Change
David Nicholson is the Director of Mercy Corps’ Technical Unit for Environment, Energy and Climate Change, which provides technical support to programs across the Mercy Corps global portfolio. Mercy Corps addresses the impact of climate change in two ways. Prior to Mercy Corps, David worked as a carbon-finance project developer in Uganda and for DAI as a climate change and energy consultant.
While the effects of climate change are being felt worldwide, it is in the most vulnerable developing states that the most significant impacts will be felt. Mitigating against the effects of climate change requires unparalleled levels of cooperation across different sectors and different types of organizations: this session will examine how best to address climate change and its effects on the region.
