Tamsin’s current focus is on organisational development. She is leading the development of programmatic offers under our politics, economics and resources themes. Alongside this, she is engaged in thinking about the implications of longer-term trends for UK environmental politics and our community, as a precursor to developing Green Alliance’s 2015 – 2018 strategy. She maintains our senior relationships with charitable trusts and corporate organisations.
Prior to joining Green Alliance in 2010, Tamsin worked at IEEP (the Institute for European Environmental Policy) where latterly she was head of the agriculture and land management programme. At IEEP she led numerous pan-European policy studies for the European Commission, European Parliament and the UK nature conservation agencies, focusing on the provision of environmental public goods through agriculture as well as land-use change, food security and CAP reform.
Tamsin has a detailed knowledge of EU institutions, environmental policy, and the EU budget, with a wide network of contacts in NGOs and policy institutes across the 27 member states. She has sat on a number of advisory panels, including for the Rural Economies and Land Use programme (2007 -2010), and has given evidence to the House of Lords on CAP reform. She has authored many reports and articles on CAP reform.
Tamsin has a PhD in geography, an MSc in conservation from UCL, and speaks French.
