About Hanna Lønning Gjerdi
Hanna Lønning Gjerdi

Spending much of my childhood and youth in the Norwegian forests and mountains, 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. 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 exploring connections between the Himalayas and the Arctic.


At GRID-Arendal I am engaged in a number of projects concerning high mountain and Arctic environments, by turning complex environmental data into creative and scientifically sound communication products. I work on topics concerning climate change impacts and adaptation, biodiversity, ecosystems and marine litter, and lead the UArctic Thematic Network on Arctic Plastic Pollution.
