Biography

Hanne Knaepen is a Policy Officer on climate change issues. She works in the Sustainable Food Systems team of ECDPM’s Economic and Agricultural Transformation programme.

Hanne holds a Master Degree in Japanese Studies from the University of Leuven and a Master-after-Master Degree in European Studies from the Free University of Brussels (ULB), both in Belgium. In addition, she received her doctoral degree in Global Environmental Studies at Kyoto University, Japan, where she resided for a period of four years.

Throughout her PhD she has mainly worked on the issue of mainstreaming climate change adaptation into existing development in Vietnam and she conducted an assessment of the work of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) within this domain.
