Cesare is a Postdoctoral Fellow at CGIAR (Alliance of Bioversity and CIAT).
His role involves research and programming activities aimed at promoting a transition towards inclusive and equitable low-emission development pathways. Before joining CGIAR in 2022, he completed my PhD in Public Policy at the University of Tokyo, where he examined the intersections between climate policy, finance, and security.
Cesare's work on climate security has been featured in peer-reviewed journals and referenced by the IPCC in their 6th Assessment Report. His research focuses on three main areas: compounded climate security risks in socio-ecological systems, problems with access and scaling in multilateral climate finance, and policy coherence analysis.
In addition to writing papers, he is leading the development of an early warning system for multilateral climate funds and contributing to the design of a community based adaptation project in Africa.
