To support Indonesia’s efforts to scale-up its climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts, the Flood Impacts, Carbon Pricing, and Ecosystem Sustainability (FINCAPES) project was launched earlier this week in Jakarta. Faculty of Environment researchers working together with colleagues in the Faculty of Mathematics and partners in Indonesia will explore carbon pricing and trading, and nature-based solutions to assist Indonesia with building a low-carbon economy and a healthier, more sustainable future.

Taking us on her experience trekking through Western Nepal, Caitlin Laidlaw, a master’s student in Geography & Environmental Management, answers the question: how do locals who live with snow leopards feel about conservation? Her short documentary is this year’s second place GRADflix competition winner alongside five other graduate students from the Faculty of Environment who placed in the top 25 finalists. Congratulations to Caitlin, Navya, Anika, Larissa, Amerald and Patrick!
