Will you take a walk with me? I’d like to tell you what I learned in Bonn at the UNFCCC COP a few days ago….
And after the UNFCCC Bonn climate talks: An appetite for disruption
I am Global Adviser in Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience with Oxfam. As co-Principal Investigator in the 'Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions' (ASSAR) project, I lead the Research-into-Use work, which aims to make research more participatory and recognise impact as its key objective. I support Oxfam country teams in designing and delivering adaptation and development initiatives that promote gender equality and work across various levels of governance. I am a firm believer that in cases where social injustices underpin climate governance, adaptation without transformation is short-sighted, helps to perpetuate top-down development agendas, and can even be unethical. I have academic degrees from Yale University, Lund University, the UN University in Japan, and the University of London's SOAS.
Research To Action (R2A) is a learning platform for anyone interested in maximising the impact of research and capturing evidence of impact.
The site publishes practical resources on a range of topics including research uptake, communications, policy influence and monitoring and evaluation. It captures the experiences of practitioners and researchers working on these topics and facilitates conversations between this global community through a range of social media platforms.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
