Ellen DanielsAOS

Sierra Gladfelter  

Guest: Sierra Gladfelter works to mitigate the debilitating impacts of climate change on water resources in vulnerable communities across the developing world and here in the US.

Sierra is Interim Project Manager for the University of Virginia’s Institute for Engagement & Negotiation and a development associate, with the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club. Sierra is working in areas devastated or threatened by the effects of climate change such as flooding and drought. Sierra works with interventions that both confront the roots of people’s vulnerability and that complement local knowledge and practices. As the recipient of both a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (2014-2017) and a Fulbright-Nehru Student Research Fellowship (2017-2018), Sierra has spent the last four years studying the impacts of climate change on water resources in vulnerable communities across the developing world.
