Roslyn Nand from Fiji is one of the four students from the Pacific who was awarded a scholarship in 2020 for a Masters course on Climate Change. Her studies will focus on Integrating Gender equity in small-scale fisheries to improve food security resilience in Fiji, thanks to the European Union- funded Intra ACP GCCA+ Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change and Resilience Building (PACRES) project.
‘’As a teacher I felt I needed to know more in order to deliver better”, said Ms Nand, who was previously teaching at Sacred Heart College in Fiji. “This would help me create a generation that would understand the causes and effects of climate change and be responsible for their actions”. She said her research would focus on generation gender equity in small-scale fisheries to improve food security resilience.’’ said Nand.
