Ms. Edna Odhiambo currently serves as a Tutorial Fellow at the School of Law, University of Nairobi, where she teaches and researches on Climate Change and Land Use Law. She is a climate change lawyer with expertise in climate policy, climate finance and clean energy. Her work focuses primarily on developing regulatory frameworks to promote climate action in cities especially in transportation. She has recent publications and over seventeen international presentations on climate governance and sustainable cities.

At Carbon Africa, sheoffered legal advisory services on climate finance through drafting carbon services agreements under the Clean Development Mechanism for Lake Turkana Wind Power, Kipeto Wind Power, Giggawatt global and Project Gaia. She advised governments and private developers on project bankability under various schemes including the Green Climate Fund. Having worked at the Climate Change Unit, Office of the Prime Minister, she gained holistic experience in government legislative and policy processes through involvement in the development of the Kenya Climate Change Act and National Climate Change Action Plan (2013-17). At Strathmore Energy Research Centre, she focused on net-metering and feed-in-tariffs as a mean of creating enabling regulatory frameworks for the uptake of clean energy. 

Edna is a Fulbright scholar with a masters in Environment and Natural Resources Law from the University of Oregon, a postgraduate diploma from the Kenya School of Law, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa. She is currently in the early phases of pursuing a doctorate on sustainable mobility regulatory frameworks. She has a great love for travel and sports.
