Daniel Morchain

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.
