Franck Lecocq is lecturer at AgroParisTech, and director of CIRED. Franck’s research focuses on the economics of climate change, including, inter alia, inter- and intra-generational equity, relationships between climate change and development, carbon markets, and the role of forests in climate policy. Franck Lecocq is a lead author of the IPCC 4th and 5th Assessment Reports (Working Group III). He is also a member of the French Economic Council for Sustainable Development.

Before joining CIRED, Franck was deputy director of the Laboratory of Forestry Economics in Nancy, France, and economist at the World Bank Development Economics Research Group (DECRG).
