Juliette Mariel

I graduated from an engineering school in agronomy and a double master’s degree in tropical ecology. After my studies I worked in teaching and then started a thesis in September 2016 with CIRAD (Agricultural Research for development). My thesis focuses on agrobiodiversity management practices in agroforestry systems and explores processes for multi-scale diversification of an agrarian landscape on the northeast coast of Madagascar. I am studying in particular the role of networks of actors involved in the circulation of agro-ecological knowledge and plant material in the evolution of practices in response to factors of change. It is with the objective of identifying and describing these factors, and in particular those related to climate change, that I wanted to do the LICCI training.
