Simon works on gender equality issues in climate change – specifically the synergies possible among low carbon transitions and gender equality, and the gendered aspects of addressing climate loss and damage. Simon is a founding member of IIED’s gender equality champions network. His work includes ways to transform experiential learning of sustainable development into evidence for policy. He is exploring how to use realist approaches to learning at the interfaces of gender equality and universality.
