Ocean Equity Research

Mialy Andriamahefazafy


Mialy is human geographer with a focus on natural resources management and ocean governance. She investigated the power relations behind tuna fisheries management in Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles from the local to the regional Western Indian Ocean level, using political ecology as a theoretical framework. Her recent work looked at the implementation of the UN SDG 14 in the Western Indian Ocean. 

She is currently the Science-Policy Officer at the Geneva Science-Policy Interface. Her work consists of supporting researchers in improving their policy engagement through capacity building activities. She also contributes to various policy briefs aimed at policy makers in the International Geneva. 

While the ocean is often out of sight, she is reminded constantly in daily life (the state of the climate, the fish she buys, the goods transported from afar) that the ocean is at the center of our lives.
