Laura Kmoch

PhD Student, department of Space, Earth and Environment.

My research explores drivers, pathways and impacts of land-use change on livelihoods and socio-ecological production landscapes of smallholders in Myanmar. Since 2011 Myanmar experiences a phase of rapid transformation, due to the formal cessation of military governance and the implementation of reforms. In this context, I explore challenges and new opportunities arising for rural people at the forest-agriculture margin, with a specific interest in agroforestry practices.
I strive to identify sustainable development trajectories for rural people, towards the triple objective of improved livelihoods, sustainable use and conservation of natural resources and ecosystems.
