As I hit the home stretch of thesis writing I will be writing popular versions of much of the same stuff I am writing up for my PhD. The plan is a series of articles on “what is climate change adaptation?”
I hope these articles will be useful for other academics just getting into adaptation, or government and company staff asked to look into the topic but not sure where to start.
The first article introduces what climate change adaptation is, and a generic 5 step process in which it takes place. Clink on the image below to go to the article.
A report summarizing a workshop I held with colleagues from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver is now online.
Like my other work, the workshop engaged the broad question of “who should do how with which instruments for climate change adaptation”. Unique from my other work however, this meeting focused on the British Columbia context.
The report is available on the Adaptation to Climate Change Team (ACT) website.
A big thank you ro Deb Harford, Willem Peters, Jack Satzewich, and my supervisor Gordon McBean for all their hard work with the workshop and the report.

A report authored by myself, J. Raikes and G. McBean has recently been released and posted online by the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction. You can check it out online at the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction.
Thank you to all participants at both workshops as well as to the wonderful staff at ICLR for helping develop,format, and release the report.
