Lisa Keusen works at adelphi as Advisor in the field of local climate action. Together with municipalities, she works on shaping and implementing change processes towards more climate justice at the local level. She advises municipalities on the planning and implementation of local climate projects, develops concepts and strategies for innovative financing models and participation processes, and strengthens the practice-oriented exchange of knowledge through inter-municipal dialogue.
"How we face the climate crisis is ultimately decided on the ground, in cities and municipalities. With my work at adelphi, I support municipalities in taking ambitious steps forward and effectively anchoring climate action as a joint task of politics, civil society and businesses".
