UQO Chair, partners launch climate change adaptation project in Guinea


A research chair at the Université du Québec en Outaouais and UPA Développement International have launched a new project that aims to improve the climate change adaptation capabilities of women in Guinea. The project focuses on promoting the adoption of nature-based solutions in the Parc national du Moyen-Bafing and advancing the sustainable improvement of economic opportunities for women involved in the governance of forest biodiversity. This three-year project was developed and will be led by UQO’s Canada Research Chair in Ecological Economics Jérôme Dupras. It will receive $16M in funding from the Government of Canada as well as supports from other international partners.
