Durban, South Africa
The embedded researcher based in Durban has been working with climate scientists in the FRACTAL team to develop sector-specific biodiversity narratives under a changing climate in Durban. In so doing, she has initiated and been part of many conversations related to the potential effects of climate change on biodiversity in Durban.
She is currently grappling with the challenge of providing climate information that is both useful and robust. The embedded researcher has been in the Environmental Planning & Climate Protection Department (EPCPD) and has been involved in the Durban Research Action Partnership. Her contract ended recently but the Department has seen such value in her work that they have provided resources to extend her contract.
