Title: Research Associate
Role: Assistant Editor, Climate and Development journal
Expertise: climate change adaptation
Elise Remling is Research Associate at SEI in Stockholm, and Assistant Editor of the academic journal Climate and Development.
Her research interests lie at the intersection of climate change and sustainable development, with a focus on vulnerability and adaptation to the impacts of climate change.
Elise is particularly interested in how the gap between local adaptation needs and national policy making can be bridged and what kind of mechanisms could assure appropriate financing for adaptation in developing countries. Her recent work thus examined international governance of climate change adaptation, particularly adaptation finance, under questions of equity and efficiency.
Her current work also involves exploring links between climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and gender and how enhanced gender visibility can be integrated into adaptation and DRR planning.
Elise is a geographer with an M.Sc. in “Global Transformation and Environmental Change”, from the University of Hamburg, Germany. Her master's thesis explored livelihood vulnerability, coping strategies and adaptation to climate change in Kenya and involved two months of empirical field work in Nairobi using social science methodologies. She holds a dual B.A. in Geography and Cultural- and Social Anthropology from the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany.
