Climate Change – Research Update

In addition to chairing CHC’s first-ever Research Symposium in July, CHC’s Senior Lecturer Dr Johannes Luetz has achieved significant recent success with his own research activities.

As noted here previously, Johannes presented a paper at the Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in the Pacific Region which was held in Fiji last month. His paper “Climate change and migration in the Maldives: Some lessons for policy makers” was well received and has subsequently been accepted for publication as a chapter in the book “Climate change adaptation in pacific countries: Fostering resilience and improving the quality of life”. This book forms a volume of the award-winning book series “Climate change management” published by Springer.

Following this, Johannes has been accepted to present a paper at the Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Asia to be held in India in February 2017. His paper “Climate change and migration in Bangladesh: Empirically derived lessons and opportunities for policy makers and practitioners” draws on field research conducted as part of his PhD. Papers from the symposium will be published in a multi-volume publication “Guidebook on climate change adaptation in Asia: Strengthening sustainable development and adaptation capabilities” which will form a volume of Springer’s “Climate change management” series.
