Ouerle Chao

PhD Researcher

I am interested in Mongolian traditional knowledge and culture and how they influence climate change local adaptation strategies. In my master thesis, I explored Inner Mongolian traditional knowledge systems, specifically the Ovoo Offering, and how it can increase local nomads resistance to climate change through strengthening pillars of support and conviviality. 

I have joined the LICCI project in 2022 to start a 4-year PhD on cultural aspects of climate change impacts. My doctoral study explores the climate change impacts on indigenous culture with a particular focus on Inner Mongolian nomadic culture and lifestyle. Additionally, I'm interested in what ways the Mongolian cosmovision can contribute to climate change adaptation strategies.
