Caspian Sea State of the Environment 2019
The Caspian Sea State of the Environment Report presents a sober diagnosis of the challenges faced by the Sea and its marine environment.
I found my way to the environmental work I do here at GRID-Arendal through my interest in fair and socially just sustainable development.
I began my academic journey studying Development Studies at the University of Oslo, where I majored in political science. My thesis involved fieldwork in Peru, where I researched the fight against privatization of water in Lima. This experience taught me how international cooperation, understanding and information sharing play an important role in sustainable development.
I also have a master’s degree in Global Development and Planning from the University of Agder where I wrote my thesis on the Norwegian climate discourse in light of global fast policies. My work is inspired by my interest and belief in international cooperation for sustainable development. Here at GRID-Arendal I am currently working for the Transboundary Governance and Environmental Crime programme, mainly focusing on projects concerning the use of new and innovative technologies and satellite data to support development projects and stop environmental crimes, such as illegal logging and fishing.
