Igor Shishlov holds a PhD in Environmental Economics from Paris-Saclay University and an MSc in Sustainable Development from HEC Paris as well as a diploma in International Business from St. Petersburg State University. He has been working on climate change issues since 2011 and regularly contributes to policy debates with academic and non-academic publications and conference presentations.
At Perspectives, Igor’s work mostly focuses on climate policies in developing countries, climate finance instruments and carbon accounting (MRV). Some examples of his work include the establishment of sectoral baselines and estimation of mitigation potential in Morocco, supporting the World Bank in the evaluation of its carbon finance activities and advising the EBRD on how to boost the contribution of green bonds to financing the low-carbon transition. Previously, Igor worked for six years at I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics, a Paris-based think-tank, where he conducted research on international climate policies, notably the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI) under the Kyoto Protocol, and climate finance instruments, such as green bonds and green credit lines. Igor is also teaching master courses on climate change economics at HEC Paris.
