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 website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.
We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
