Greeshma Hegde has an MSc in Climate Science and Policy from TERI University, New Delhi, India. At IIHS, she works with the Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR) project. Her research interests lie in knowledge systems (traditional, local, indigenous) and innovation with regards to their potential role in climate change adaptation. She also works on Transformative Scenario Planning (TSP), a process that entails dealing with economic, social, and environmental challenges and engages diverse actors and stakeholders to collectively construct a shared understanding of the functioning of a system, and then to act on the basis of this understanding. She has also worked on assessing risks and vulnerabilities involved in human resettlement and relocation post hydro-meteorological disasters, in India.
Prior to working at IIHS, Greeshma worked with The Energy and Resource Institute, TERI, on monitoring the implementation of the Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP) in two districts of Uttarakhand.
