Noelia Zafra Calvo

Short CV

Dr. Noelia Zafra-Calvo holds a degree in Environmental Sciences and a PhD in Global Change and Sustainable Development from the University of Alcalá and the Natural History Museum of Madrid, Spain.

At the BC3 she works in integrating social equity in the valuation of nature and environmental governance. Her previous work has focused on science-policy research, solving pressing and complex issues in the interface of people-nature interactions. Her research has contributed to (1) developing a tracking system to assess multidimensional social equity in protected areas to report on Aichi Target 11; (2) developing a novel participatory assessment approach to identify and quantify the ecological, economic and social impacts of different conservation strategies borne by local stakeholders in African countries, and (3) estimating and incorporating human threats and social concerns into systematic conservation planning approaches.

She also has more than ten years of professional experience coordinating conservation and empowerment programs in African countries.
