RESEARCH & POLICY

Kate Dooley

Kate Dooley is a Research Fellow at Melbourne University’s Climate and Energy College, and a Lecturer in the School of Geography.

Kate has worked globally with environmental movements and non-governmental organisations for the past two decades, focussing on forest and climate policy. She has worked on forest governance reforms to tackle illegal logging, and the European Union’s policy responses in these areas. She has been following the UN climate negotiations since 2009, focusing on the role of forests and land-use in climate mitigation, and how this can be achieved while enhancing equity and human rights.

Kate is currently researching the potential for ambitious restoration of natural ecosystems to remove and lock-up up atmospheric carbon.  Previous publications have looked at the politics of carbon accounting in the forest and land-use sector and the justice and equity implications of land-based climate mitigation.


Kate’s

Perspective

“The nexus of the climate and biodiversity crisis shows us that we need a different way of interacting with the Earth, one that is based on a different set of values than material wealth and consumption.“
