Dr Julien Andrieu, Head of the Geospatial monitoring and information technology department at the French Institute of Pondicherry, presents the project "SEDRIC@Sri Lanka".

What is "SEDRIC@Sri Lanka"?

🌏 The French Embassy, through the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, has launched a multidisciplinary research project (“SEDRIC@Sri Lanka”) to develop a better understanding of the social and ecological changes taking place along the Southern and Eastern coasts of Sri Lanka. The project, led by the French Institute of Pondicherry (IFP), brought together researchers and students from the Eastern University, the University of Ruhuna, the University of Peradeniya, the International Centre for Ethnic Studies, and IFP. All together these five partners mapped, tracked and developed a nuanced understanding of the rapid transformation taking place in coastal ecosystems, economies and lifestyles.
