Linus Dagerskog's PhD research investigates the potential of innovations for conservation of water, soil and nutrients in two Ethiopian villages.

Dagerskog is a PhD student within the Triple Green project at SRC. Together with SEI and Ethiopian partners, they investigate the potential of promising innovations for improved conservation of local water, soil and nutrient resources in Bolo Silasie and Adama, two Ethiopian villages in the Minjar Shenkora district. In addition to biophysical effects, they also look at local perceptions, economics and institutional aspects that influence adaptation and adoption of tested innovations and aim to model upscaling potential.

Dagerskog has an MSc in Aquatic and Environmental engineering, and for the past ten years has been engaged in research, demonstration and capacity building around links between sanitation and agriculture, and the challenges of sustaining and scaling “green” sanitation solutions. From 2006-2009, he lived and worked in Burkina Faso as a Sida “Bilateral Associate Expert” assisting CREPA’s regional EcoSan program implemented in ten West African countries and also coordinating a productive sanitation project in Niger. Since returning to Sweden in 2010, Dagerskog have been working with sustainable sanitation in different projects at the Stockholm Environment Institute, where he is still employed with the PhD-project as my main focus.

Dagersko is the co-founder and board member of Toilets Without Borders, a Swedish NGO that support green sanitation projects in developing countries

When not working on his PhD, Dagerskog lives in Nyköping with his family (sambo and two kids). They spend quite some time at Änggärdet, a collectively owned farm in Skebokvarn with 17 members experimenting and learning about food-growing, forestry and how to co-manage a (small) farm.
