Abbie Clare

Abbie is a postdoctoral researcher with the PRISE project (Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economies). She joined the GRI in January 2016, having previously completed a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, which investigated the socio-economic suitability of biochar as a sustainable agriculture technology in China. Concurrently, Abbie also worked as a consultant for the Asian Development Bank to explore the climate change benefits of biochar, bio-gas and composting projects in Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam.

Within the PRISE project, Abbie will be researching climate change adaptation strategies in semi-arid countries, focusing primarily on the private-public institutional architecture in Tajikistan, and where this may drive, incentivise and/or block climate-resilient adaptation.
