Christine de Sainte-Marie

christineI am a political economist at the Science for Action and Development (SAD), a cross-disciplinary division of the French National Institute for Agricultural Research promoting participative research.

Within the INRA-AgroParisTech Unit, I devote my research to the process by which considerations towards the conservation of natural resources and biodiversity are integrated into all policy domains, including that of agriculture. I am particularly interested in collective action aimed at reconciling food production with ecological functioning such as integrated production, innovative agri-environmental schemes, origin based-products and raw milk cheese.
