Paula Barreto De Figueiredo BarstedMSc in Environmental Change and Management


I am passionate about addressing the world’s most pressing environmental problems. For the last seven years, I have worked to promote social and environmental issues at the Brazilian Development Bank. I have joined the MSc program to acquire additional knowledge and broaden my possibilities to act in favour of sustainable development.

My research interests are related to development and climate change, including climate adaptation and climate policy at national and subnational levels. I am also interested in international cooperation in environmental issues and research topics related to sustainable finance, such as enabling a low-carbon economy and disclosure of climate risks.
