Biography

Liliane Binego is a researcher in Stabilisation Agriculture in the Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience at Coventry University where her research work involves responding and building resilient food productions systems in fragile environments such as forced displacement settings. And, focusing on food production as an enabler of bringing about stability and development of sustainable futures in communities that have been affected by and/or at risk of disasters. Informed by her disaster management expertise and experience, her work converges toward informing systemic changes in current approaches and strategies of humanitarian food assistance and development. Thus, pushing toward the shifting from conventional to a diversified and inclusive humanitarian food security response. One of her breakthrough was her work on farming for food security under conditions of forced displacement using the case of the Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Then, linking up with the adaptive management of living stressors in stabilisation agriculture programme , her PhD has covered the potential presented by invasive species such as Acrididae in supporting food security and livelihoods in affected communities. Liliane uses her research work in capacity building through leading and delivery of CU Stabilisation Agriculture teaching programme.

Transforming Land, Transforming Lives: Greening Innovation and Urban Agriculture in the Context of Forced Displacement

Lemon Tree Trust

There are more refugees in the world today than ever previously recorded. If the displaced were the population of one country, it would be the 24th largest in the world. In the face of this unprecedented challenge, the world is tasked with finding durable solutions that require common purpose. We need bold and inclusive leadership, deep understanding, and ambitious plans with decisive actions. Change calls for the innovation and nimbleness more typical of lean start-ups. It calls for an approach rooted in a network of talented professionals who believe grassroots movements can change the world.
