Anne Hammill is Director, Resilience for IISD.
Much of her work focuses on understanding how better environmental management can build resilience to climate stress and contribute to peacebuilding. Anne’s most recent work has been in developing and applying decision-support tools for climate change adaptation, conducting participatory field research on livelihoods and climate change, and building the capacity of governments and civil society to integrate climate risk into policies and field projects. She has also been working with organizations in Eastern and Central Africa to understand and address the links between conservation activities and conflict.
