Climate change and conflict - reframing the debate
Florence has over 10 years’ experience working on adaptation to climate change, resilience and disaster management across a variety of contexts (UK, France, Australia, Africa). Her work has focused on understanding the differentiated vulnerabilities and capacities to adapt of private actors, communities and societies and how to enhance their resilience to environmental and climatic changes. She is particularly interested in the dynamics of dryland economies and societies in Africa, and their adaptation challenges and opportunities.
