Outlook on climate change adaptation in the Hindu Kush Himalaya
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is on the frontline of climate change, experiencing both fast and slow onset climate hazards creating risks...
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 globalisation specialising in geography from the Norwegian University of Science 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.
