background

Before Lisette joined the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) in 2014, she was a climate risk advisor to the American Red Cross, Department of International Services. There she provided technical support to raise awareness of climate variability and changes in international disaster risk reduction programs. Lisette's work with the Red Cross / Red Crescent Movement began in 2008 at the Red Cross / Red Crescent Climate Center, where she provided technical support for cross-border programs such as the Climate Change Preparation Program and Resilience Partners. During her work for the climate center, Lisette also worked at the IRI, where she supported the partnership for saving lives with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). This work included working with climate scientists to provide tools and services to support forecast-based decision-making, working as part of the help desk team to provide disaster managers with quick answers to climate-related questions, and coordinating an internship program that graduates students with climate expertise to Red Cross and Red Crescent offices around the world. Lisette also documented the use of climate information by the Red Cross in West Africa for improved disaster risk management and response. Through her master's degree in Climate and Society at Columbia University, she acquired interdisciplinary knowledge of climate variability and change. Prior to joining climate risk management, Lisette worked with nonprofits including the Environmental Leadership Program and the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group. Lisette earned her bachelor's degrees in environment, economics and politics from Scripps College.
