Bruno Locatelli’s background is in environmental sciences (Master’s in science and technology, 1993; degree in forest engineering, 1995; Master’s in hydrology, 1995; Doctorate in environmental sciences, 2000). His interest in forests and climate change dates back to 1993, when he did work on carbon quantification with CIRAD (Agricultural Research for Development). Later he researched mechanisms for forests and mitigation (Clean Development Mechanism, Payment for Ecosystem Services), especially during 2002 to 2007, when he was working with CIRAD and CATIE (Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center) in Costa Rica. In 2005, his research activities shifted from mitigation to adaptation. He is now based in Indonesia and working with CIRAD and CIFOR on forests and adaptation to climate change.
