Portrait of Mairi Dupar

Mairi currently serves as the Gender and Social Inclusion Lead and Managing Editor for the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN). Mairi has acted as the project leader for major CDKN initiatives to make Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports more accessible to developing country readers (most recently, www.cdkn.org/landreport and www.cdkn.org/oceanreport). She has authored a policy summary of the findings of the Ecosystems for Poverty Alleviation programme, www.espa-headlines.ac.uk, and a book on integrating climate goals into development www.cdkn.org/mainstreaming. Her guide to communicating about climate change is now the subject of a major e-learning course across the Americas, www.cdkn.org/communicating.

Mairi leads on knowledge management for the Climate Ambition Support Alliance, which works to enhance the capacity of climate negotiators from climate-vulnerable countries; and also for the Building Resilience and Adapting to Climate Change (BRACC) hub in Malawi and Weather and Climate Information Services in Africa (WISER) TRANSFORM project. She advises on communication and stakeholder engagement for Supporting Pastoralism and Agriculture in Recurrent and Protracted Crisis (SPARC) in Africa and the Middle East.
