Veronica Lo
I am an ecologist working on interdisciplinary approaches to climate change adaptation and conservation planning. I have a background in experimental field ecology, particularly salt marshes in coastal ecosystems. I have also worked with NGOs and UN agencies on protected areas planning and ecosystem-based adaptation.


I am a project manager and researcher for ENVISION (An inclusive approach to assessing integrative scenarios and visions for protected area management, funded by BiodivERsA ERA-Net). My current research focus is comparing visions and adaptation pathways across protected areas with participatory scenario planning tools.
