    Biographical Statement

    Caitlyn Eberle joined the EVES section of UNU-EHS as a Research Associate in 2021 after earning her MSc in Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security from UNU-EHS and Universität Bonn. In her master’s thesis, Caitlyn researched how non-economic loss and damage is presented in the IPCC Special Reports, and hopes to further integrate into the field of loss and damage with future research. During her studies, she also worked as an intern in the Environmental Governance section of the Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik, primarily researching investments in social protection mechanisms from global climate funds.

    Among other positions, Caitlyn has previously worked as a sustainability intern for Johnson County Community College, where she focused on composting food waste on campus and assisted in researching infrastructure impacts on wildlife. She has also volunteered for the North American and Abu Dhabi Solar Challenges, both cross-country solar car races, as well as in Bluefields, Jamaica and Guadalajara, Mexico, assisting in building community-led solar powered water systems. Caitlyn also works as a beekeeper on her grandparents’ farm in rural Missouri.
