Magali Troin is a hydroclimatology and climate change expert with over 15 years of experience in international academic research and the hydroelectricity industry, including eight years in the OURANOS Consortium (Montreal), an innovation cluster on Regional Climatology and Adaptation to Climate Change. Her primary expertise includes climate change impacts on water resources, water management, climate risks, and extreme events (floods, droughts), which has led her to publish in over 20 scientific publications. Magali manages and contributes to innovative international projects related to climate and climate change risk assessment for various sectors such as insurance, local authorities, infrastructures, hydroelectricity industries, watershed managers, and farmers.
As an expert for the Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) initiative, Magali and Adrien Lambert are working in collaboration with the Government of Morocco’s Climate Change Competence Centre (4C). Their work consists of identifying climate hazards in the Tetouan region and developing an adaptation and resilience strategy with regional authorities.
A hydrologist, Magali is interested in the relationships between climate change and water resources before accounting for the impacts of environmental changes on the water. She works for a better knowledge of the effects of climate change on vital socio-economic issues through innovative research and development projects to prepare territories and companies for the future.
