REDD Hot: How One Community Defends its Forest One Carbon Credit at a Time (MS ’14)

Tanya was born and grew up in Bulgaria. She came to ERG after a career in Army medicine and an environmental science degree from University of London. For her masters project, she is interested in how environmental protection laws are passed and receive public support, as illustrated by the case of Costa Rica – an exemplary model of a country with what is widely-regarded as the strongest set of environmental protection and sustainability policies in the world. After obtaining her masters degree, she is planning to work as a journalist covering topics from energy to biodiversity.
