Panel 2: 
Realizing the Opportunities of a World in Transformation

Principal Research Fellow, Grantham Research Institute, London School of Economics, Associate Fellow at Chatham House

Dimitri Zenghelis is a Principal Research Fellow at the Grantham Research Institute at the LSE and an Associate Fellow at Chatham House. He was recently Senior Economic Advisor to Cisco’s long term innovation group.

Previously, he headed the Stern Review Team at the Office of Climate Change, London, and was a senior economist working with Lord Stern on the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change, commissioned by the then Chancellor Gordon Brown. The Stern Review is widely acclaimed as the most comprehensive study to date of the economics of climate change. It was intended not just to inform UK policymaking – the UK makes up only 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions – but also to underpin discussions about the wider international policy framework and provide a common understanding of the key issues. Lord Stern’s report was submitted to the Chancellor and the Prime Minister on 30 October 2006.

Before working on climate change, Dimitri was Head of Economic Forecasting and Head of the Macroeconomic Analysis Branch at HM Treasury. He has provided regular briefings to the Chancellor Gordon Brown and Prime Minister Tony Blair.  He has also worked at Oxford Economics, the Institute of International Finance, Washington DC, and Tokai Bank Europe, London.
