Dr Jessica Omukuti

Research Fellow, Inclusive Net Zero, for the Oxford Net Zero Initiative, Institute of Science Innovation and Technology


Dr Jessica Omukuti is interested in understanding how responses to climate change affect societies in the Global South. Within this, is work on the governance of climate change adaptation and mitigation, climate justice, just transitions and climate finance in the Global South.  

Her most recent research - as a COP26 fellow at the University of York - has focused on governance of climate finance for adaptation. Now at Oxford, Dr Omukuti is expanding to focus on the governance of strategies for Net Zero emissions, particularly in the Global South. Her research has mainly been based on Sub-Saharan Africa, but she has also recently started focusing on governance of Net Zero in Latin America, the Caribbean and South Asia.
