Professor Tahseen Jafry
As Director of The Mary Robinson Centre for Climate Justice my research interests are wider and deep. They include the justice and equity aspects of climate change, gender and poverty targeting, the management of natural resources; especially water, the geo-political nature of climate justice and the psycho-social impacts of climate change. As a qualified engineer and social scientist, I am well versed across disciplines and have over two decades of research and development experience in the global south.
