Svenja Enge

Student Assistant

I am currently studying in the joint Master’s program “Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security” at the United Nations University-EHS in cooperation with the University of Bonn. During my Bachelor’s program at the Ruhr-University Bochum, I developed a strong interest in natural hazards and especially in the interrelations between Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction. My academic focus lies on the assessment of risk in hazard-prone areas, particularly in the light of global dynamics such as migration and climate change. Another main interest of mine is the application of GIS in disaster risk contexts, which I learned more about during an internship with the Federal Agency for Technical Disaster Relief (THW). Since April 2017 I have been a student assistant for the TransRe Project.

TransRe Project

TransRe - Building resilience through translocality.

The TransRe project seeks to decipher the relations between migration, translocality and social resilience to climate change based on case studies carried out in Thailand and migration destinations.

Translocal Networks

Role of Social Networks in Resilience: Rural Thailand

The subproject studies migration networks by carrying out a social network analysis. The aim is to understand the influence of network properties on the ability to respond to climatic risks.
