Updated: Sep 10, 2020
Liliana Andriano, postdoctoral researcher at LCDS, will take part in an online workshop this Thursday (10 September) alongside Kathryn Grace, Murylo Batista, Valeria Urbina Cordano, Ileana Rojas and Amanda Veile, as part of Environment x Women's Health.
explore Women in the Global South are disproportionately negatively impacted by environmental threats and climate change. The workshop will draw on expertise within demography, psychology, sociology, epidemiology, population health and beyond to explore environmental effects on maternal, reproductive and mental health, show-case new research, facilitate knowledge exchange and discuss potential community-based solutions.
Andriano will speak about her paper "The Effects of Growing-Season Drought on Young Adult Women's Life Course Transitions: Evidence From Malawi", a joint collaboration with Julia Behrman from Northwestern University. The paper provides a conceptual overview and empirical investigation of how weather shocks impact young women's life course transitions as part of a broader investigation of the demographic implications of climate change.
Attendance is free but spaces are limited and registration is required. The workshop is a participatory session where attendees are encouraged to contribute and learn from one another through active discussion. Only ticket holders to the online event can access livestream content.
