Magali selected for EU Marie Curie Training Course

Interdisciplinary environmental research training to support her work on the environmental impacts of refugees in Tanzania

Magali selected for EU Marie Curie Training Course

Magali Moreau was one of twenty PhD students from all over Europe, as well as Brazil and Japan, selected to participate in a training course on Environmental Scenario Analysis, at Roskilde University, Denmark, from 16 to 22 April. The course was fully funded by the European Community through its Marie Curie Actions Programme, as one of the METIER (METhods of Interdisciplinary Environmental Research) events.


Magali has now been invited to take part in the METIER final conference in Brussels in November 2009, where policy-makers and scientists will meet to discuss how methods in environmental research can be used to support policy-making.

Her research is supervised by JoAnn McGregor and Ben Page, and focuses on land-use and land-cover changes in refugee-hosting areas of Western Tanzania. Her last period of fieldwork in Tanzania was made possible by a RGS-IBG Postgraduate Fieldwork Award (conservation/sustainability category).
