Evan Carr is an MPP candidate at the Jackson School of Global Affairs, where he is focusing on climate policy and natural resource management in a developing economy context. Prior to Yale, he worked for DAI Global and managed a USAID-funded development project that works to increase the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices and improve economic opportunities for smallholder farmers in Central Asia. His portfolio also included a water resource management program in Southeast Asia, where he worked with local government counterparts on policies that harmonize the interests of upstream communities with coastal city municipalities using a watershed-centric approach. Evan’s interest in working on sustainability and equity was bolstered at Williams College while pursuing a BA in political science with a concentration in global studies. He researched strategies for environmental conservation and alternative livelihood income generation in Arctic mining communities and interned at a legal advocacy center supporting communities impacted by mining company malpractice in Namibia. 
After Yale, Evan aspires to work with policy research or international development organizations that advance innovative policy solutions to environmental degradation and economic inequality.
