Moushumi Chaudhury

Social Scientist

I am a social scientist and science officer with the global CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security. I focus on developing approaches, tools and strategies aimed at enhancing linkages between the knowledge co-produced by researchers, farmers, community organizations, development practitioners and others, and actions that lead to sustainable agricultural practices that enhance livelihoods and resilience to a changing climate. My expertise and experience includes conducting research and policy analysis on climate change adaptation and mitigation, early warning systems, renewable energy, ecosystem services, gender, and the MDGs for various international research institutes and UN agencies.
