Jennifer Allan is a Strategic Adviser and Team Leader with Earth Negotiations Bulletin, as well as a Lecturer at Cardiff University. A Canadian national with a focus on a broad range of global environmental challenges, Jen has followed climate change, chemicals, and wastes with ENB since 2011.

Jen's work has explored how rules are made at a global level. She contributed to the ENB team that documented and analysed the adoption of the Paris Agreement and led our work related to the Paris Agreement Work Programme. With the team, she outlined the key components and dynamics – an assessment ultimately used by media, NGOs, and governments around the world.
