As a Senior Program Officer, Market Analysis, Javier tracks international climate policy discussions and develops engagement strategies in markets where Verra carbon standards are used.

Prior to joining Verra, Javier worked at the NDC Partnership, where he was responsible for the coordination and management of various aspects of the Economic Advisory Initiative. He also supported the analysis and summary of new contributions to countries’ NDCs, such as those of the Dominican Republic. Javier also worked for four years at a Mexican NGO managing a voluntary forest carbon offsetting program. He has also collaborated in research projects and policy dialogues centered around community-based approaches to ecosystem conservation, agroforestry, and soil health in the U.S., Latin America, and Africa.
