Manuela Quijano Hoyos Her/She/Ella


My research interests are the intersection of conflict, peacebuilding and the environment, common pool resources management, participatory actions, and people's motivation to participate in Payments of Ecosystem Services and other conservation actions. I am also learning about how gender approaches can influence environmental problems. I have experience doing research in Colombia and Mexico.
