Caroline Lumosi

I am a final year master student in Forest and Nature Conservation at Wageningen University, The Netherlands. I am interested in community and livelihood climate change adaptation and the integration of climate information for climate change adaptation in Africa. In addition, I am interested in linking knowledge from climate science and natural resource management into action, in this sense, making science practical for practitioners. To do this, I was involved in producing and filming 6 short conservation films that aimed at translating scientific findings into simple and communicable ideas for community members and policy members. I am therefore keen to contribute to a communication platform that engages and supports practitioners to acquire the required climate information to support their adaptation decisions.
