Sukaina Bharwani

Senior Research Fellow

Role at SEI:

My interests include exploring indigenous knowledge and more specifically tacit knowledge. Eliciting and formalising this in a way that can be useful for understanding adaptation decision-making processes to help reduce vulnerability to climate change is a core component of my work

Role in weADAPT:

My role in weADAPT involves translating user needs (collated from our Knowledge Partners and networks) into the technical features that are of greatest value in facilitating work on climate adaptation.
