GSD professor presents indigenous community research at science festival

A member of our Global Sustainable Development department recently presented their research at the first ever Resonate Festival of Science and Technology in Leamington Spa.

Dr Camilla Audia - Assistant Professor of GSD who leads our Health and Sustainable Development and Addressing Disasters for Sustainable. Development undergraduate modules - presented her research on indigenous communities in Burkina Faso at the festival’s first event, which focused on projects related to weather.

Dr Audia discussed the knowledge of weather held by rural communities in Burkina Faso. By examining local methods for reading the weather, Camilla opened up a conversation about weather forecasting, the impact of climate on developing countries and the relationship between the scientific and the indigenous. She was also joined by other Warwick faculty, such as Professor Eric Holub (Life Sciences), Dr Richard Everitt (Department of Statistics), and Dr Ravindra Desai (Department of Physics).
