Till Neeff is an independent expert on forests and climate change. He advises firms and governments on emissions monitoring and mitigation. He provides policy advisory, capacity development and project management support.
In the early 2000s Till spent three years researching land-use change and its carbon impacts at Costa Rica’s CATIE and at the Brazilian INPE, the National Institute for Space Research.
He then joined EcoSecurities, the UK-based leader of global carbon markets. During the heydays of Kyoto Protocol’s CDM, Till toured Latin America and Southeast Asia scouting for carbon investment opportunities.
In 2010 Till switched to the public sector. He managed a grant portfolio at the German Ministry of the Environment’s International Climate Initiative. Later, he took charge of CD-REDD, a collaborative capacity development platform for African and Latin American countries between GIZ, the CfRN, the Thünen Institute and the FAO.
Today Till works as an independent expert from Rome, Italy. He has recently provided much support to several UN organizations on issues related to emissions monitoring and mitigation. He also advises on sustainable value chains and on deforestation-free commodity production.
