Point Advisory welcomes Farema Yazdi as a Consultant in our Melbourne team.
Farema has experience in qualitative research, data management and analysis in the climate change field, predominantly gained through her Master’s thesis and conducting research for local government and non-profit organisations. Farema has also conducted research for a UN Global Compact for Cities report which sought to inform climate adaptation policy in Victoria, and worked with the Climate Reality Project in Canada to assist with the research, development and launch of the National Climate League ahead of COP24.
In her Master’s thesis, Farema analysed the interactions between climate change mitigation and adaptation in the context of Melbourne’s city resilience. Farema is interested in the ways in which contributions of mitigation can be strengthened in resilience theory and practice, particularly in the Middle East. She hopes to eventually pursue a Ph.D. in this field.
Outside of work, Farema enjoys all things art, culture and bouldering.
