Tahia Devisscher

Hi! I am interested in decision making processes related to adaptation and governance of social-ecological systems. I am also exploring synergies between climate adaptation and mitigation working on different case studies in tropical forest landscapes.

I am also involved in the development team of weADAPT, contributing with new articles, liaising with knowledge partners and editing content for the Ecosystem based Adaptation initiative, the Adaptation Training initiative and the Forests and Climate Change initiative. I am very excited to see how weADAPT has evolved over the years and explore the potential developments that can shape its future.
