Student Jessica Reilly-​​Moman

Jes­sica Reilly who is cur­rently sup­ported by a Ful­bright Fel­low­ship to study coastal cli­mate change in Mex­ico, has now also been awarded the Insti­tute of Cur­rent World Affairs Fel­low­ship.  Over the next two years, Jes­sica and her part­ner Josh Moman will sail the Pacific coast of Cen­tral Amer­ica, cross through the Panama canal, and move into the Caribbean to explore the region by way of the ocean, look­ing at cli­mate change. She will use her map­ping expe­ri­ence to gather data and build maps show­ing vul­ner­a­bil­ity to sea level rise for each coun­try. By sus­tain­ably har­ness­ing wind and sun to travel, Jes­sica hopes to access remote loca­tions, share the ocean-​​bound expe­ri­ence of local com­mu­ni­ties, and lis­ten to and doc­u­ment sto­ries of cli­mate adap­ta­tion at the shores of Latin Amer­ica and the Caribbean with words, images, and video.
