emilieparryEmilie Parry is a DPhil student in the School of Geography and the Environment at the University of Oxford. Her applied, collaborative research involves concepts of integrated resilience centered within community capacities and networks, encompassing strategies and learning transference around climate change adaptation and mitigation, as well as community-based biodiversity conservation. In particular, she is interested in inter-religious dialogue to address the human drivers of climate change and support biodiversity conservation, and has been working with the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), which has facilitated the Inter-Religious Climate and Ecology (ICE) Network, intended to build problem-solving platforms, learn from each other across Asian and African community networks, and to build an educational and action-based movement of cooperation across all faiths and spiritual practices, in the spirit of engaging around the issue of climate change.

Prior to joining the University of Oxford, Emilie worked globally in sustainable community development, complex emergencies, disaster risk management, and other resilience-related realms.
