Investigative Environmental Journalism Grants
Increasing awareness of environmental crime issues through financial support to investigative environmental journalists
I am an agro-economist with over five years of international experiences in the field of fisheries, governance support, natural resource management and community development. Originally from France, the sea was at first the background of my adventures and dreams before becoming the central point of my life. While fascinated by this ecosystem and its mysteries, I also quickly became interested in human-marine natural resources relations.
Before joining GRID-Arendal, I navigated between project implementation and science-based research as a project manager in Southeast Asia, Africa and Central America. I had the opportunity to get involved in resource management, governance and policy support and climate change impact mitigation with organisations such as the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the WorldFish center, building my profile as a marine environment expert through diverse field experiences.
I now have the pleasure to be part of the GRID-Arendal Marine team and Coach team for the organisation. My work focuses on different themes and programmes, including marine litter management along the Atlantic coast of Africa through several projects aiming to increase local and global knowledge, along with supporting regional and national action plans regarding the implementation of UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) Resolutions on Marine Litter and Microplastics. I am also involved with the Transboundary Governance and Environmental Crime programme as manager of the Investigative Environmental Journalism project, placing environmental crimes in the spotlight of international attention and engaging in actions against it.
