Dr Nishikant Gupta’s decade long experience working on biodiversity, environmental sustainability and climate change in both LDC and MDC countries has enhanced resilient practices by bridging the science-policy-practice gap. He has developed and managed several projects across international organizations to strengthen ecosystem services, livelihoods, and holistic biodiversity conservation which directly feed into policy formulation. He has also initiated crucial interdisciplinary collaborations at various levels of governance and provided novel solutions which address major ecological and socio-economic challenges in Asia, Europe and Australia aided by 36 scientific publications and 44 diverse sets of knowledge products. He now aims to scale-up and scale-out climate adaptation solutions, understand vulnerabilities and opportunities and develop path-breaking policy documents to boost existing conservation programmes leading to long-term sustainability.
