Lena Prouchet

After studying a masters in international economics and an M.Sc. in Food Policy, Léna joined the SITE department (Science, Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship) of the Business School in March 2020 to start a multi-disciplinary project combining environmental, development and entrepreneurship topics.

Her PhD focuses on multi-stakeholder partnerships for forest preservation. More specifically, her research seeks to understand how entrepreneurial projects for income generation and livelihood improvement, such as cocoa and coffee farming, supported by international NGOs, can enhance local communities' empowerment and how this can in turn contribute to rainforest preservation.

This project is a collaboration with Cool Earth, an NGO that works alongside local communities to tackle climate change through forest protection. Léna focuses on the partnerships Cool Earth has established in Peru.
