Jordan is an up-and-coming young professional in climate change and security. As a researcher, analyst and communications specialist, Jordan is driven to propel climate security as a key issue on the global climate governance agenda. She is particularly interested in climate diplomacy, climate security, energy security, human security, resilience and adaptation, risk reduction and how climate change can amplify pre-existing threats.

Jordan represented EDRC at COP26 as part of the IES delegation to promote and engage others with the concept of climate security.
