Jorge Rogat is no longer employed with the UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre or UNEP DTU Partnership since 2023
Since my PhD graduation in environmental economics at Gothenburg University, I have worked for more than 20 years implementing projects in developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. Between 2010 and 2018, I was the global project manager of the Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). In my capacity as global project manager of the project, I gained vast experience in technology assessments and technology transfer and interacting with public authorities, such as ministries of energy, transport, and natural resources, as well as the private sector. At UNEP DTU Partnership (UDP), I also conducted research on policy measures to promote sustainable transport. Since 2019, I have been working in energy efficiency with a focus on helping decision-makers in small-sized cities and municipalities in developing countries to improve energy efficiency in the building and transport sector. Before joining my current organisation, UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre (former UDP), I worked for two years at the Global Water Partnership (GWP), where I was the programme officer for Latin America and the Caribbean.
