Kevin Adams

Research Fellow

Kevin Adams joined SEI Stockholm in 2017. Kevin’s research focuses primarily on global climate politics and the political economy of environmental problems.

At SEI, he has worked on both the Global Adaptation Governance project studying transnational climate adaptation, and the Global Finance Initiative where he has written about the Green Climate Fund. Kevin also works closely with the AdaptationWatch research network, focusing on issues of transparency in climate adaptation governance.

Broadly, Kevin is interested in understanding the way global governance institutions continue to evolve in a world influenced by climate change. Trained as an environmental sociologist, he is particularly interested in using political and ethical theory to understand the role of democratic norms like legitimacy and justice in environmental policymaking.

Prior to joining SEI, Kevin worked as a contractor for several organizations, including the UNFCCC Secretariat in Bonn, Germany. He holds a MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado and a BS in Geophysics and a BS in Social Sciences from Michigan State University, USA.
