Climate change adaptation, coastal and marine livelihoods, loss and damage, gender, intersectionality
My research takes place in the context of two projects. First, a European Union funded project named Marine Coastal Ecosystems Biodiversity and Services in a Changing World (Macobios) aiming to "ensure efficient and integrated management and conservation strategies for European MCE to face Climate change." Then a FORMAS funded project called: "Recasting the disproportionate impacts of climate change extremes (DICE)." The DICE project seeks to "expand theories of climate governance to incorporate contemporary dynamics and challenges of L&D and the associated effects, in particular challenges to non-economic wellbeing, and those posed to the Sustainable Development Goals."
My research focuses on climate change adaptation, livelihood, loss and damage, gender, and intersectionality in Martinique, an overseas department of France situated in the Caribbean Sea. Using a gender and an intersectional lens, I investigate the disproportionate impact of climate change on marine coastal ecosystem services and how it affects farmers' and fishers' livelihoods. I particularly focus on understanding the link between climate change adaptation and loss and damage in Martinique's island context.
