Yanick’s research focuses on fossil fuel subsidy reform in Canada, climate change and energy policy, international climate change talks under the United Nations, climate finance and capacity building, and carbon pricing mechanisms.Yanick’s recent projects include participating in the development of Morocco’s INDC and of two guidebooks to the UNFCCC negotiations for French-speaking negotiators (COP 21, Paris; COP 22, Marrakech), published by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF). Yanick also provided Strategic advice for Green Climate Fund accreditation to a regional development bank and a national development bank (confidential clients).
