Aleisha Khan joined ICF in 2011. She is an international development professional with over 20 years of project and management experience. She leads clean energy work within the Global Climate Services Team – a strategic initiative that leverages expertise in multiple disciplines across the firm to design and deliver programs in developing countries. She recently served as Chief of Party for USAID’s Energy Efficiency for Clean Development Program (EECDP), a six-year $22 million global cooperative agreement. Through this DC-based program, Aleisha designed projects, formed multi-disciplinary implementation teams, and managed a diverse scope of activities to promote economic growth. She also promoted field-based projects and teams to implement activity directly with USAID country missions. Aleisha is ICF’s engagement manager for two trade-focused contracts, one working with APEC economies and the other with ASEAN member countries, and a third energy development program in Central Asia.
Focused on clean energy for much of her career, Aleisha has expertise across a range of technical areas and is experienced in building internal and external organizational capacity. She has worked for a variety of non-profit organizations and consulting firms and, just prior to ICF, led the Building Codes Assistance Project (BCAP) as its Executive Director – growing its capabilities, budget, and staff through an expanded vision based on stakeholder and partner collaboration. Most recently, Aleisha authored domestic and international documents to promote green growth and sustainability for US DOE, the World Bank, and APEC. She has expertise in designing and delivering advocacy and assistance programs, presentations, and multi-day training workshops, for colleagues, government officials, and stakeholder collaborations.
