Equity & ES

The aim of this research line is to analyze the different forms of inequities that affect the governance of ecosystem services (distributive, participatory and recognition inequities), as well as the good ecological status of ecosystems and biodiversity. I am currently conducting research activities in Peru (in the Mariño watershed) and in France (City of Paris and Maurienne valley), with Sandra Lavorel. The objective I pursue with this research line are the following: 

I am supervising two PhD students on these questions: Lisa Lejemtel and Zoé Pelta. In the past, I have also supervized the work of Jade Houssay (M1 intern), Marie Hays (M2 intern), Lisa Lejemtel (M1 intern), Victor Bourdeaud'Hui (M2 intern), Andrea Vera (M2 intern).
