InSIS Welcomes Dr Michael Gilmont and the DeFWS Project

In April, InSIS will welcome Oxford researcher Dr Michael Gilmont who will be working with Professor Rayner on the project 'Decoupling Food and Water Security in a Middle-East in Flux - Insights from Israel and Transferable Lessons for Jordan and Palestine' (DeFWS).

Michael is a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford Environmental Change Institute (ECI) and a Research Associate of InSIS. His interests include the application of interdisciplinary political, economic and hydrological approaches to analysing water resource development and use.

DeFWS is a joint project between Oxford University, the WANA Institute (a policy think tank based in Amman, Jordan), and EcoPeace Middle East (an environmental organisation with offices in Amman, Bethlehem, and Tel-Aviv), and is funded by the British Council in Israel.
