About Hanna Lønning Gjerdi
Hanna Lønning Gjerdi
Research Assistant, Polar and Mountain Environments
Phone: +47 954 06 772

Spending much of my childhood and youth in the Norwegian forests, mountains, and countryside I developed a curiosity for environmental issues early on. In my academic work, I have been interested in studying interactions and connections between society, nature and policy, and I hold a MSc in globalization specialising in geography from the Norwegian University ofScience and Technology (NTNU).


Before joining GRID-Arendal, my great passion for mountain environments led me to Nepal and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Here I spent most of my time working with the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme and exploring connections between the Himalayas and the Arctic.


At GRID-Arendal I support the Polar and Mountain Environments Programme on a variety of topics concerning high mountain and Arctic environments, by turning complex environmental data into creative and scientifically sound communication products.
