Thesis Directed By: Professor Robert L. Hill, Department of Environmental Science and Technology. Climate change is affecting crop production in the Eastern US and is expected to continue doing so unless adaptation measures are employed. In the first study, we conducted surveys and interviews to identify crop management practices currently used as adaptations in the Mid-Atlantic US. The.Read More
Key to understanding these issues and concerns are the politics that underlie climate change and development interactions. Throughout the module, we will explore three overarching ways in which politics are important to climate change and development: (1) Current political and economic priorities, essentially clustered around the.Read More

Current concerns relate to increasing urbanisation and global environmental trends in regard to resource scarcity, climate change and degrading environmental quality. Urban complexity, cross-scale impacts, socio-institutional diversity and adaptability become crucial when thinking about alternative development pathways. This dissertation seeks to explore why and how cities face change in this.Read More
The governance of climate change adaptation presents a paradox: Climate change is a global risk, yet vulnerability is locally experienced. In order to address this paradox, debates in environmental governance need to find ways of integrating local perceptions of risk with global risk assessments. But how can local inclusiveness be achieved in the context of global environmental risks, and what.Read More

There is a growing demand for knowledge and expertise in all aspects of climate change: the science of climate systems and human influences on natural processes; the history of past climate change and the trajectory of climate projections over the next hundred years or longer; the vulnerability of human and natural systems around the world; the practical and policy responses we need to manage.Read More
Following a methodology based on grounded theory, interviews were undertaken with 10 academics involved in teaching climate change. The interview data was analysed and categorised according to the interview participants' conceptions of uncertainty and the implications for teaching uncertainty. The research found that uncertainty in the context of climate change is a complex and multivariate.Read More
