Simon Fowell


After graduating in Economics at the University of Leeds, I was disillusioned by the fact that economic decisions seemed to disregard nature. Merging my passions for the environment and economics, I began to focus on valuing nature to realign economic incentives toward environmental sustainability. I work as an Economist at Impact Infrastructure developing triple bottom line cost benefit analysis (TBL CBA) to make infrastructure projects more sustainable and community-based systems more viable. I've also held positions at eftec, the UK’s leading environmental economic consultancy, working on projects for private companies, government agencies, and charities ranging from water policy in the UK, to valuing reforestation in Indonesia. In 2016, I received my Master of Development Practice from U.C. Berkeley.
