Virginie Le Masson

Research Fellow
Virginie is a geographer whose research interests combine Disaster Risk Reduction and social justice, including gender aspects of environmental and climate issues; women’s rights; and Gender-based Violence.

Virginie is working with both the Social Development and Risk & Resilience programmes at ODI. Her research primarily focuses on the social vulnerability dimension of disaster risk reduction and climate change mitigation and adaptation. Her more recent work also aims to explore the linkages between gender-based violence, disaster risks and resilience. With regular assignments in both south Asia and Africa, she delivers field-based research, vulnerability assessments and gender-awareness trainings, in collaboration with civil society organisations, NGOs, the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement and United Nation agencies.
