Asher Lazarus holds a BSc. in International Agricultural Development from the University of California, Davis. He is currently completing his MSc in Climate Studies at Wageningen University, with a focus on human-environment interactions. Asher is particularly interested in the intersection of water resource management and agri-food systems, and how climate change impacts these spheres. He hopes to apply his knowledge to projects that support environmental sustainability through socially equitable practices.
Asher’s MSc thesis involved the integration of natural and social science in developing food security indicators from modelled crop yields based on a case study in Pakistan. Having lived in the US, Morocco, Jordan, and the Netherlands, he brings a uniquely international perspective to the table. He is eager to keep learning about climate adaptation efforts around the world, and continues to develop his skills in geospatial and statistical analysis.
CREATE: Cross-Border Climate Vulnerabilities and Remote Impacts of Food Systems of the EU, Turkey and Africa
Knowledge and research on cross-border climate vulnerabilities and impacts of a geographic area is still a new topic in scientific literature. Nowadays, climate risk and impact assessments of food-systems focus typically on the production within a geographic area only. Consequently, knowledge and research on the cross-border climate vulnerabilities of food-systems…
